New 14er Radio Awards !!!

Bob Witte K0NR <k0nr-list@...>
 

I am pleased to announce that the 14er Event Task Force has approved
the creation of the following awards to encourage radio operation
from the Colorado 14ers. Note that the awards are structured to
encourage activation of mountaintops as well as contacting
mountaintop stations. Contacts can be made at any time during the
year but it will probably be easier to work 14er stations during the
14er Event. Paul Ermisch KB0LUR has put this together and has agreed
to be the Awards Manager. Thanks, Paul!

I an still working on getting the web site updated...should be done
shortly.

Colorado 14er Awards

The purpose of these awards is to promote the use and understanding
of amateur radio by combining it with backcountry, hiking/climbing
and mountaintop operating. The Summit award is available to licensed
amateur radio operators who make direct contact with radio amateurs
operating from Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks. The Pinnacle award
is available to licensed amateur radio operators who actually operate
from (activate) Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks.

General Rules
1. The official list of Colorado 14,000-foot (14er) peaks consists of
the 54 peaks normally recognized as distinct 14,000-foot or greater
mountains, as recorded on the Colorado 14er Event web site
(http://www.Colorado14erEvent.org)
2. Mountaintop stations must be near the actual recognized summit of
the mountain, within 500 vertical feet and 1000 horizontal feet of
the highest point on the mountain.
3. A contact is defined as a completed QSO with exchange of callsigns
directly between two amateur radio stations on any authorized amateur
radio frequency using any authorized mode.
4. Peak/contact credit is valid only once per peak. If applying for
endorsements, peak credit may be re-used as long as all peaks
submitted are unique.
5. Contacts made via terrestrial repeaters are not recognized for
this award.
6. Contacts made via satellite repeaters in space are allowed.
7. Contacts must be made on or after January 1, 1990.

10. Application for either award must be made via the official
application form available at the Colorado 14er Event web site.

Colorado 14er peaks.

award
recognizing 10 or more peaks/contacts completed during any single
annual Colorado 14er Event.
