This is a past event
To celebrate BYLARA’s 40th Anniversary we ran some awards.
From April 2019, we took it in turns to operate as GB40BYL.
- Certificates were available for working GB40BYL a minimum of 40 times (one contact per day counted towards the award).
- Further certificates were available for working multiples of 40.
- Endorsements were available on request, such as making contacts using a specific band, mode, etc.
40th Anniversary Award
The challenge for this award is to work as many YLs as possible within 2019. The YLs do not need to be BYLARA members and can be anywhere in the world.
- Certificates are available for working multiples of 12 YLs.
- Each YL’s callsign and BYLARA number (where appropriate) will feature on the certificate.
- Endorsements are available on request, such as 12 contacts using a specific band, mode, etc.
How to claim
Our tracker spreadsheets (see below) will keep count of your contacts for you. When you want to claim a certificate, simply email a copy of of your tracker to our Awards Manager. Extracts from your own log will also be accepted.
Free. Certificates will be issued as PDF files via email. Donations to BYLARA are most welcome.
QSL cards are not required.
