Award Rules for SWL
The awards can also be purchased by SWLs (with and without SWL registration number). For this purpose, several SWL reports must be proven. Every SWL report for one of our special stations must be verified with date, time, band, mode and 2 (!) remote stations. The second remote station must be in the SES log at a maximum interval of 15 minutes.
SWL’s must register and receive a password. This allows you to log into the logbook server and enter the logged QSOs. The log of our SES is checked automatically; a small time difference is tolerated. (more here)
NOTE: Please note that in exceptional cases it can take 24 hours until the QSOs from our SES have been uploaded to the website and checked automatically.
The rules correspond accordingly to the awards for the sending stations. The points achieved, the dQSL and the awards can also be downloaded via the corresponding website for the sending stations.
