Contacts made a total of 128, each one must be presented with its Qsl card. One CAVANCHA HAM CLUB official station is required for the award. This contact should be used to replace any other contact needed from the First Region.
Contacts made with a single station may be applied for different categories of the award at the same time. They will be valid ONLY if contacts are made on different dates. If you make only one contact with this station, you must choose in what category you want this contact to use. e.g. If you contact with CE1XXX from Arica, you must indicate on the Application Log on what category you want to validate this contact as Region, Arica province, Capital province of Arica, etc. If you contact with the same station, CE1XXX, on different dates and you received one QSL for each contact, then you can show that station in the different categories.
Contacts made with the same station on multi band or single band on the same date WILL NOT be counted, except for a expedition, previously reported by Ham Dx bulletin and confirmed residence. This is the only case in which Multi band contacts will be valid. EXPEDITION LOGS: All expedition log must be sent separated by band and it should have at least 25 contacts with different stations on the most worked band and a minimum of 5 contacts with different stations on each of the other bands.
Any CE Ham that want to activate a Region, Region Capital, Province or Province Capital, must sent a copy of the log with the contacts made during the activation, proving their residence with any of these ways: Photographs of the place showing the activation group and a easy recognized part of the place, any bill from the place with the date of the activation, Carabineros´ certificate or any other certificate. This requisite is very important to validate any application of any other station that applied to this award.
The applications by contact category must be made in the following order:
CLASS A --- CLASS B --- CLASS C
If you want you can apply for two classes (A,B) or separately, but in any case you must get CLASS A first. Cards are also required together with the listing. These will be sent back with the certificate. QSLs cards must contain the minimum data required for any contact: CALL, DATE, UTC, BAND, RST, MODE (indicating on the qsl what Region, Capital or Province this station belongs).
The fees for this certificate are US $ 5.00 for any international station.
