EPC-CRO - Croatian PSK Award Series
EPC Croatian Award Series was devised by the Croatian Section of the
European PSK Club (EPC-CRO) in the Radio Club of Zagreb on
25th November 2007 ( idea and awards design by 9A3ACZ). This was to
sponsor a series of PSK awards based on the EPC-CRO membership and
administrative geography of Croatia. Any EPC-CRO award may be claimed
by any licensed radio amateur, club station or SWL/DMS eligible under
these rules who can produce evidence of having contacted/monitored
Croatian EPC members by using PSK modes. All awards can be claimed as
Activated as well as Worked. PSK contacts are valid with any stations
from Croatia on or after 10th June 2006.
are eight EPC-CRO Awards at the moment: the EPC-CRO series in five
classes BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD, PLATINUM and DIAMOND; and three Regional
awards EPC-CRO EAST, EPC-CRO NORTH and EPC-CRO SOUTH. QSL-cards are not
required. Awards are issued to the person or club. The person or club
can use any legal call sign. Contacts made from club stations or
special event stations count to the credit of both the club and the
operator. All stations must be operated in accordance with their
licensing conditions. Contacts may be made from any location in the
same DXCC country. Credit will be given for contacts made on any of the
amateur bands below 30 MHz. Confirmations from the EPC-CRO SWL or DMS
stations are accepted as confirmed contacts.
submission for credit of any altered or forged log extractions or,
equally, bad behaviour on or off the air which is judged by the
European PSK Club to bring a particular programme into disrepute may
result in disqualification of the applicant from the Award Programme.
The decision of the award manager on this and other matters of dispute
will be finals.
awards are issued FREE of charge in a high quality PDF format and sent
via email to the applicants. Awards could be printed with the highest
quality and with optimal performance by applicants themselves. EPC-CRO
awards are issued to the EPC members only. If you have any questions,
please do not hesitate to contact us.
EPC-CRO Awards may be claimed by any EPC member eligible under the
EPC-CRO PSK Award Series General Rules listed above who can produce
evidence in a form of ADIF log of having contacted different Croatian
stations by using any type of the Phase Shift Keying. Each contact with
EPC-CRO member is worth 10 points. Only one QSO is permitted with each
EPC-CRO member. Ten contacts with ordinary Croatian stations (EPC-CRO
non-members) can be used as a «Joker» to replace any one missing QSO
with EPC-CRO member (only three missing EPC-CRO members could be
replaced in whole EPC-CRO award program). Each ordinary Croatian
station (EPC-CRO non-member) counts only once, and each QSO is worth 1
point. The final score is the result of the total QSO points.
