Special Event Station announcement and details

Tony Lewis
 

At the occasion of the 18th birthday of HRH Princess Elisabeth, the UBA is offering a commemorative award for working special event stations aired between October 25th and 25th December 2019.

During this two months period, the UBA will activate the special event station OR0YAL (which can be read as O Royal). Furthermore, over 30 UBA clubstations using the special prefix OR18 will be on the air.

Rules:

  • Each OR18 station as well as OR0YAL counts two points on the first band worked and one additional point on every additional band worked.
  • Example: OR18UBA worked on both 80m and 40m + OR18DIG worked on 160m, 80m, 17m and 2m + OR0YAL worked on 30m makes ten points in total).
  • Contacts made on the same band but in different modes do not count separately.
  • No band or mode restrictions nor any endorsements.
  • Please note that, however you're encouraged to do so, contacting Belgian stations other than OR0YAL and the OR18 clubcalls do not get you any points towards the certificate.

In total there are 4 awards to achieve:

  • Bronze: 30 points
  • Silver: 50 points
  • Gold: 70 points
  • Platinum: 110 points
