special callsigns to commemorate the creation of the EU.
An initiative of EA Digital Federation and European Radio Amateurs' Organization (EURAO),
who offers QSL and Award to you.
The contact is also valid for the Radio Clubs of the World Award, EANET.
Despite requesting to use these special callsigns for the entire weekend, they has been authorized only for
Monday May 9, 2011. Thank you, Mr. Minister!
How to contact the special stations?
All day, they will be on the air using the different bands and modes more usual
(phony, CW, digital, etc.). A good way to locate them is through
DX Cluster and/or also consulting the
agenda of the activity.
In addition to making contact (or listening the SWLs) with one or several of the active stations from all
Spanish districts, you should act according to the case:
it is enough to request the QSL card on the website of
using the option "QSL Request", indicating in Manager: EA3RKF. It is not necessary to send your own QSL.
Hams not members from countries where EuroBureauQSL is present:
send your QSL and a SASE to the
entry point of your own country (national tariff),
except those marked in red that needn't SASE (i.e. UK).
OMs from other countries: sent a self addressed envelope and 1 IRC to:
FEDI-EA - P.O. Box 3050 - 08200 Sabadell (SPAIN).
Warning: Don't try to send your QSLs via IARU bureaus classic system, they will never get to us because
its member society in Spain (URE) throws them away.
Those contacting with at least 3 special stations of different districts, will be able to
download the special Award
for free from the internet in pdf format.
Those who get 5 districts contacted will reach the Award with distinctive Bronze,
with 7 to Silver and with the all 9 to Gold.
Our sincere thanks in advance to all those operators and volunteers, whose efforts
will enable all of these stations are on the air during that period, making known to the world
Europe, Spain and organizations that promote this activity.
