Suffix Words Award

Comments:

Many call letter suffixes form common words such as W3CAT, K3GO, EA1JAR, etc. This award is for working stations with such call letters. This award is adapted from a suggestion made by George KN2GSJ (now K2GHM). Sounds like a lot of fun - thank you George.


Time Frame For Qualifying QSO's:

January 1, 2008 0000Z through the present


Basic Award Premise:

Work as many different stations as possible whose suffixes form two or three letter words. An arbiter is needed to decide what is a word and what is not. We've decided on a commonly used official Scrabble word list. See the end of these rules for the list which you may cut and paste into a text file for printing out if you wish. Working W2CAT and W3CAT counts as 2 stations, so there are a large number of available 'word calls' since the same word can be used with many different prefixes.

Only the whole suffix counts as a word - you can't get AT from W3ZAT or US from K2USN, and so forth.


Categories:

Simple Wire Antennas Only
Any other combination of SWA and Gain antennas


Equipment:

YOU:
Power: QRP
Antenna: Any.

HAM YOU WORK:
Power: Any
Antenna: Any


QSOs:

Any kind of 2 way CW QSO's count - rag chew, DX, contest, nets, etc.


Certificate:

Issued when you reach 50 'word calls'. A certificate sent to you via email is FREE. You may make a monetary donation, only if you wish to do so. There is no obligation to do so. If you want us to print your certificate and send it via regular mail, the fee is $3.00 per certificate.


Web Site Listing:

Listed when you reach the certificate level of 50 'word calls' and as stated in the Endorsements section below.


Endorsements:

No true endorsements, but you may regularly update your listing total on the web site 'Honor Roll' each time you work 25 or more new 'word calls'. The listing will be by categories - 50, 75, 100, 125, etc.


Logs:

A simple list of the stations you worked arranged alphabetically by the suffix words. Include which category you are applying for. For endorsements include ALL stations worked, not just the additional ones.
