Award Classes

International Marconi Day – Award Classes

 As in previous years the event will run for a full 24 hours with contacts made on HF only counting towards the award. All modes of radio communication are accepted towards the award and are actively encouraged.   Please note that VHF, UHF or contacts made with one of the current crop of Internet assisted modes, e.g. Echolink, will not count towards the award for IMD.

The Certificates are of a very high quality and are well worth obtaining to display on the wall of any Shack.    They are based on an original Marconi Stock Certificate Circa 1901 and are offered under the following categories:-

1. TRANSMITTING AMATEUR – Fixed Station

To establish  direct two-way communication with 15 of the official Award Stations from a fixed location,  mixed modes are permitted.

2. TRANSMITTING AMATEUR  –  Mobile

To establish  two-way communication with 12 of the official Award Stations from a mobile location,  mixed modes are permitted.

 3. TRANSMITTING AMATEUR   –  CW

To establish  two-way communication with 15 of the official Award Stations from a fixed location, using  CW only.4. TRANSMITTING AMATEUR   –   Digital Modes

To establish  two-way communication with 15 of the official Award Stations from a fixed location, using Digital Modes only.

e.g. AMTOR/PACTOR/RTTY/AX25/ASCII/PSK31 & SSTV

5. TRANSMITTING AMATEUR   –   Multi-Operator

An opportunity for Clubs/Groups at fixed locations to take part and gain the award by establishing two-way communication with 20 of the official Award Stations using mixed modes or  with 20 contacts using eitherC.W. or Digital Modes

Award for Transmitting Class

6. SHORTWAVE LISTENERS

To log two-way communications made by 15 of the official Award Stations,  mixed modes are permitted.

7. SHORTWAVE LISTENERS   –  CW

Award for Listeners Class

 

As in previous years, it is suggested that transmitting amateur stations should log all two-way contacts heard between IMD award stations and other stations.   Even if they fail to establish contact with the stations themselves,  it will still be possible to claim the SWL award using a combination of heard and worked contacts. Nice touch to have both types of certificate on the shack wall too.
