This year the theme of the award is telephone exchanges.
This is a fun event for all Amateurs, all who submit a log will receive a Certificate.
The Award Runs from 21 December 2019 to 9 February 2020
The BIG challenge: how many different telephone exchanges can you contact other amateurs at, via the National System or DMR (on the ZL talk group).
The rules are simple.
- Contact an Amateur located as close as possible to a Telephone Exchange via the National System or DMR ZL Talk Group – both sender and receiver log One Point for contacts made via the National System or 1.5 points for contacts made via the ZL DMR talk group
- Contact a National System or DMR Repeater Trustee, log Five Bonus Points for each trustee
- Must include a contact with ZL2WA
- Telephone Exchanges may only be logged once (Telephone exchanges do not include Cell Sites, Cabinets or Radio Transmitting/Receiving sites). As a starter here is a list of Chorus Exchanges extracted from The New Zealand Gazette Notice Number 2011-go8265.
Logs must be received with a summary of the points claimed by the Award Custodian no later than 13th March 2020, and may be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with KNSA in the subject line, or, post to:
