To apply for this award you have to work a certain number of stations from all continents and with the first letter of their suffix you should be able to form the phrase “Amateur Radio” plus your own callsign.
Example : let’s assume that IK3GER is applying for this certificate. He will have to work some stations with whose first letter of the suffix he could be able to build the phrase “Amateur Radio IK3GER”.
As an example, he might have worked : W3ABC, G0MGR, JA3AAS, VK2TER, LU1EAQ, CN8US, DL0RA + ZS6RS, UA0AAB, UA1DER, VE3IO, ON6OT + SM3IOW, OK3KAQ, 3B8FC, PY1GWE, EE5E, UN7RT.
As regards the number “3” in the call of IK3GER, he may use any DXCC country starting with the number 3 such as 3A, 3B6, 3B7, 3B8, 3B9, 3C, 3D, 3X, 3Z etc.
But if he has worked no country with the figure 3 in the prefix he may turn the number 3 into letters and so becoming “three”, and consequently work more stations with whose first letter in the suffix he will have to build the word “three”.
This last option may be useful for those hams who have, for example, number “1” in the call. In fact there are only two countries with “1” in the prefix, namely 1A0 and 1S.
Furthermore remember that :
= if there are similar letters in the phrase you are going to build, you should use different calls. Considering again the application of IK3GER, he has some double letters ( those underlined ) “Amateur Radio IK3GER”
= it is mandatory that among the callsigns you are going to use there must be at least one call from each of the following continents : Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, North America, South America.
= QSO validity is from 1.1.1985 onwards.
The award is issued at no cost, and will be sent to you via email in the format of a JPEG or PDF file. Endorsement by band/mode is available on request.
