RULES

During October of 2017, the Associação de Radioamadores do Alto Minho (ARAM) celebrates its 25th anniversary. To commemorate this ephemeris, ARAM launches a special Award to all radioamateurs of the world, and SWL.

To obtain the Diploma, you must collect the characters necessary to complete the award title:

25 ANOS DA ARAM

Thus, there are nine different characters to get: 2, 5, A, D, M, N, O, R, e S.

All contacts on any of the following bands will be validated, between your station and any of the ARAM's members stations listed below (from now on, refered as "ARAM Station").

Each ARAM Station will operate using its own callsign and offering one and only one character per day. ARAM Stations may operate on different bands during a day, but can only offer one and the same character on that same day.

DATES: from October 1st, 2017 (0000Z) to October 31st, 2017 (2400Z)

BANDS: 160, 80, 40, 20, 17, 15, 12 e 10 meters.

VALID ARAM STATIONS: CS5ARAM, CT1DMC, CT1FXE, CT1EDA, CT1HIX, CT2GSN, CT2HKN, CT2IQK and CT7AFR.

JOKER STATION: Besides the ARAM Stations, ocasionally, the club's station will be on the air with its own callsign (CS5ARAM). Each contestant can contact this special station and ask for one missing character, only once per band. Durgin the QSO, the JOKER Station will deliver the requested character to the other part.

GENERAL CALL: Each ARAM Station is encouraged to make its calls in either portuguese or english like: "CQ CQ CQ DIPLOMA 25 ANOS DA ARAM, CHARACTER , BY , QRZ?".
For example: sation CT7AFR offering character A, will call: "CQ CQ CQ DIPLOMA 25 ANOS DA ARAM, CHARACTER A, BY CT7AFR, QRZ?".

LOGs: Contesting stations don't need to send any LOG. The LOG is made by each ARAM station and uploaded to our server, every day and available at ARAM's website, on a dedicated award webpage. On this page, every contestant station can look for its Log and see which characters are missing.
