Awards are attractive recognitions for successful operations by amateur radio and as well as motivation and intention for more activities. At the same time offer good awards opportunities to preoccupied with interesting questions of the world.
My experience is, that to work for awards we have to get over 3 steps of difficulties (without inappropriate rules:
1. to get the necessary QSOs,
2. to get the QSL cards and acceptance of the QSL dates,
3. to pay and to get the award.
The first step of difficulty was always most easy ...,
but now there are electronic certificates!

In my collection I have more than 750 awards and certificates.

New awards

Internet certificates are topical, quick reaching and attractively.

The Russian Club CW offers on its
web page a

There contains of 24 groups and a
series of trophies. In addition for participations of special activities recompenses with other certificates.
The certificate groups are so constructed that one can be quite successful as a new comer.

QSOs are valid for almost all certificates from 1/1/2000. After the up load of the application the certificate is available as a JPG files on the next day. Besides lower classes will be become always coconfirms.
