There are several operating awards available for contacting a certain number of different CWops members. Qualifying contacts can be made on any ham band at any time, must be via CW, 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 are available at the CWops Award Tools website https://cwops.telegraphy.de/ and are individually administered using the honor system.
