This award commemorates the 10th anniversary of the Insurbia Radio Club. It recognizes on this day, the historical heritage of railway lines which have been discontinued and then converted into another purpose, that being the establishment of green ways onver very gently sloping land which can be used for pedestrian cycling. This use of railways has also been been recognized in other countries including the USA where they are called "Rails to Trails".

The Insubria Radio Club has organized in collaboration with the Onda Telematica Association, A.I.R.S. and Cone Radio Team the first edition of the Disused Railways Day Award which will be held on April 2, 2017. The event is managed by the Italian Association of Greenways http://www.greenways.it .

There are 5 such disused railways in this area which will support portable operations by club members on April 2nd.  They are:
1. DFD-001 Centocelle -Frosinone from Stazione Colonna Museum using special call II0TRM by the Onda Telematica Association.
