WIA Centenary Award

About the award

A limited issue amateur radio operating award is available to celebrate the 100th year of the Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA), the world's oldest national radio society.

To qualify for an award certificate contact is required with the Centenary of Organised Amateur Radio in Australia special event station VK100WIA.

The WIA, through its 130 affiliated radio clubs, will operate a unique and expected to be highly sought after callsign from 1 May to 31 October 2010. The callsign will also be used in Australia's capital city, Canberra, where the WIA Annual General Meeting and associated events will be held in May. The unique VK100WIA callsign to be operated on all amateur bands, amateur satellite may be used and contacts via terrestrial repeaters are also eligible for the award. It is certain to be very popular on air, and this one-off award is expected to also be well sought after.

Rules

From 1 May to 31 May 2010, the special call sign VK100WIA will be activated by the WIA and from 1 June to 31 October 2010 the special call sign VK100WIA will be activated by its affiliated clubs throughout Australia.

The award will be issued to radio amateurs in Australia who accumulate 100 points and amateurs outside Australia who accumulate 50 points. A contact with VK100WIA operated by the WIA or operated by a Club is worth 10 points (only one contact with VK100WIA operated by the WIA and only one contact with each Club) and there must be a minimum of 2 contacts with VK100WIA. Contacting any WIA Member between 1st May 2010 and 31st October 2010 is worth 5 points. (Example: working VK100WIA at 10 different Clubs would be eligible for the award. Working 16 WIA members gives 80 points but then two contacts must be made with VK100WIA)

Any mode may be used, cross mode and cross band contacts are permitted. Contacts via satellites and terrestrial repeaters are permitted for this award. Send $AUD5 or 3 IRC and a list of contacts, QSL's not required, to the WIA Melbourne Office at the address below.
