All of these have their place within amateur radio, and at the risk of sounding trite, it seems a healthy sign for the hobby that there is sucha a variety of ways different people are able to gain enjoyment from it. Over the recent years the Award hunting has gained great popularity, and the number of certificates issued annualy by the various organisations and national radio societes.

All contacts must be made from the same country or separate territory within the same continental area of the world. All QSL cards (no photocopies) must show the mode and/or band for any endorsement applied for. Contacts made on 10/18/24 MHz or via satellites are void for the 5-band certificate and 6-band endorsement. All contacts for the QRP endorsement must be made on or after January 1, 1985 while running a maximum power of 5 watts output or 10 watts input.
