ZL Awards

The information has been taken from the New Zealand Call Book, published annually by NZART. Though I will try to keep the information up to date, I strongly recommend you to check an award status before sending an Application Form and any funds. Please contact NZART Awards Manager. Alternatively, drop me an e-mail and I will help you with the info.

If you find any errors please inform me and I will correct them. Also, if you can supply me with award pictures, I will add them to this page. I hope overseas hams will find the award information to be usefull. (I remember the time being SWL, I was trying to find an information about overseas awards and it was not easy). Please read Award Notes.
