These events will be of short duration, usually on a date connected with each person (which may be a single day or a week) and possibly from an appropriate location. We aim to operate on many of the HF bands, but this will depend on the prevailing propagation conditions.
There will be around 20 commemorations throughout the year at almost two-week intervals, so it should be possible for a keen follower to obtain an award. There will be three classes of award: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Duplicate contacts on different bands will count towards the awards.
Information about each event will be given here, but QSL cards or EeZee QSL Certificates will not be available for each activity, just the award certificates. These only be available, free of charge, as high resolution digital images.
To obtain an award, applications must be emailed to PARC and should give a list of the event stations that have been contacted and the bands used: no other information is needed. PARC will check the applications and the Award Certificates will be produced as quickly as possible: however, during the summer, this may take several days to complete. Fuller details will follow.
As each commemoration approaches PARC will publish information here and on the M0PHX and YHARG Twitter pages.
