THE 'SIX ON SIX AWARD (c) K1SIX

   

The Rules:
1. Only CONFIRMED CONTACTS, ANY MODE-- on SIX METERS after 6 June 1966 will be considered.
2. Contacts must be made via direct mode. Contacts via repeaters are not valid even if the repeater contains a "SIX" suffix.
3. Submit proof of TWO-WAY contacts with at least SIX different callsigns that contain the suffix: "SIX" *.
4. Stations operating portable outside their assigned DXCC entity (e.g.  PA1SIX as I2/PA1SIX) will count as a separate callsign.
5. Endorsements are issued in increments of SIX (ie.  6, 12, 18, etc.) and a new certificate will be issued with the endorsement.  Send ONLY those QSLs that qualify you for the targeted endorsement-  No more,  no less.
6. All Certificates will be individually numbered and records maintained in a database.
7. Submit QSLs and sufficient funds to cover return postage to:  K1SIX at the most recent callbook address.
8. Recommended amounts are US $3.00 for US and Canada, US $4.00 for foreign (air). Award and QSLs will be shipped in a sturdy mailer to insure the award is NOT FOLDED.  For those that don't care:  US and Canada $2.00 and foreign air $3.00 (Your award will be folded into an envelope along with your QSLs).  Please US $ only- no IRCs *.
9. If you are worried about lost QSLs* then please ship insured and submit sufficient postage for QSL return in the same manner.
10. E-qsl submissions, photocopies and GIFS/JPEGs  are now acceptable as long as the confirmation shows BOTH CALLS (along with the standard date/time/report/frequency) on a single side.  E-mail K1SIX prior to these type submissions for more information and "rules" for submitting secure e-mail attachments!  See Buckmaster or QRZ.COM for most recent e-mail address.
11. If you wish an endorsement but do not really need a new certificate that's ok.  It won't cost a dime.  If you comply with the E-QSL submission requirement above, your new endorsement level will be promptly listed below.  Please remember to e-mail ahead so we can go over the secure submission issue!

* Please see "The Fine Print" at the end of this page.

THE FINE PRINT

    K1SIX will not be held responsible for lost or stolen submissions, QSLs or any other liabilities related to this FUN endeavor.  No personal gain is intended. ANY gain realized will be donated to improve the life of those who suffer from Alzheimer's Disease.  Effective Feburary 2001: A US $1.00 price increase for all and an option to "hold" the costs if you elect to receive a folded award.  This to compensate for increased postal costs plus costs of the sturdy "mailer" to insure your award does not arrive folded.  It is hoped that anyone that has a "SIX" suffix will show complete respect for well established six meter operating practices!
    "Work 'em first, ask questions later".  I am NOT an international attorney that is "practiced" in the rules and regulations governing international law when it comes to your Amateur License!  If I happen to "catch" an illegal contact- it will be discredited if sufficient proof of an illegal QSO is received from the appropriate "authority".  Should this occur,  a new total will be calculated and posted.  If you suffer a reduction that brings your total count of confirmed 'SIX's below the minimum qualifying amount of six,  the certificate (or endorsement) you received will be considered VOID and you will be required to resubmit the appropriate amount of confirmations to bring you up to minimum award or endorsement level.  Under these conditions,  it could be possible to lose an award number completely and receive a new award with a NEW SEQUENTIAL NUMBER.  The decisions of K1SIX will be considered FINAL under such circumstances.
