32EUDXF Award

Following the success of the 30EUDXF Award whilst celebrating the 30th anniversary of the EUropean DX Foundation in 2016 it is decided to issue the 32EUDXF Award.

During November 2018 a number of Special Event Stations will be activated during the EUDXF activity month. By working these stations points can be collected for various levels of the award.

The award will be available in 4 different classes:

  • Bronze: 10 QSO’s with at least 3 different special “32EUDXF” stations
  • Silver: 15 QSO’s with at least 4 different special “32EUDXF” stations
  • Gold: 20 QSO’s with at least 5 different special “32EUDXF” stations
  • Platinum: 30 QSO’s with all activated “32EUDXF” stations.
    • At least one QSO should be made with every 32EUDXF station

Please note that working the same station on the same band in the same mode is considered a dupe QSO and will not count for the award.
Any other combination counts as a valid QSO.

The award will be available for free in an digital format.
A printed award will be made available against cost of  10 Euro/Dollar.

Valid stations for the award: DL32EUDXF – OE32EUDXF – OT32EUDXF – PA32EUDXF – PB32EUDXF – PC32EUDXF – PD32EUDXF – PE32EUDXF – PF32EUDXF – PG32EUDXF – PH32EUDXF and PI32EUDXF. (Subject to change as more SeS callsigns are not yet confirmed)
