CWops Operating Awards

There are several operating awards available for contacting a certain number of different club members. Qualifying CW contacts can be made on any ham band at any time and must be between current members. Contacts during any contest will qualify as well as any QSOs made in non-contest time periods. These awards will be available on our web site and are individually administered using the honor system. Members cumulative scores will be listed in Solid Copy.

  • Free programs are now available for download to make tracking for these awards easy.
  • You can print out your own award in PDF format, suitable for framing.
