Awards chasing ... are you ready for it ? Think of the many QSOs going on at any period of time. Well, awards hunting or chasing is one reason for this. It motivates the operator to try to achieve for utmost achievement he can attain with this hobby. Along with the fun of operating is the goal of developing better skills and at the same time enjoying the satisfaction of self-fulfillment.
The foundation takes pride in sponsoring the following awards as briefy described below.
Work and confirm all the nine (9) Philippine districts of the Philippines. Only fixed stations are good for credit.
The Philippines just like other countries is composed of different provinces and finding a station in these provinces is definitely a challenge.
Working and confirming QSOs from different towns and cities of the Philippines would give you an idea of how many dialects there are in the Philippines.
LUZVIMINDA stands for Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. The major islands of the Phlippines. The nine (9) amateur districts are located in these three islands and working/confirming club stations from each of the districts is the goal. Club Stations have DX for their prefix.
Work and confirm amateur radio stations whose suffixes end with the letters of the word MABUHAY and the letters of the alphabet.
Club stations are places where you get to QSO with new operators or novices and they do appreciate and enjoy the experience of the QSOs. Working and confirming the QSOs gives both parties the satisfaction they need for their purpose.
Special events are there for celebration and commemoration. Working as a club, group or individual in celebrating special events gives opportunities for the dessimination of information and provides attraction given by the special call for the purpose. QSL cards of special events are mostly attractive and provides detailed information of the occasion.
Start the hunt ...... let the fun begin. Decorate your walls.
