1 March to 31 December 2017

The Italian Radio Amateur Association, on the occasion of its 90th anniversary in 2017, has established a special diploma called "ARI 90 YEARS" which is open to all Radio Amateurs and SWLs of the world.

During 2017, starting from March 1 to December 31, many Italian stations will be active from different stations of the ARI Sections in all Italian regions. These stations will use call signs starting with "IQ", (such as IQ0RR), or, alternatively, the Name of the Chairman or a Member of the Chamber, and will spend a special identifier called a SASC (ASC Special) in the format composed of (1) a letter, identifying their region, (2) the characters 90ARI, and (3) a number which is used to identify regions that have either one or more stations active: such as 1 or 2, etc.

So a typical identifier/SASC will look like this: F90ARI2
This will mean F=Tuscany 90ARI = the anniversary 2 = the 2nd station in the region.
Make a note of this in your logs as it will be used in the application.

A = Abruzzo                B = Basilicata         C = Campania D = Molise
E = Emilia-Romagna  F = Toscana           G = Liguria J = Puglia
K = Calabria              L = Lombardia       M = Marche N = Trentino-Alto Adige
P = Piedmont             R = Lazio                S = Sardegna T = Sicily
U = Umbria                V Friuli-VG           W = Veneto X = Valle d’Aosta

SASC, how it works:
# Is a number that follows the word "ARI" and is assigned in order of arrival of requests for SASC by Sections. Example: If in Lombardy plalns to operate six stations IQ2, past the SASC will show: L90ARI1, L90ARI2, L90ARI3, L90ARI4, L90ARI5 and L90ARI6. Groups with their own name IQ prefix can participate provided that the Group name is registered to ARI and have obtained authorization from the President of the Section to which the Group is registered.

Will also be present during the year with two Special ARI Headquarters stations: II2ARI and IQ2ARI * who will use the SASC H90ARI1 and H90ARI2. On Marconi Day, April 22, 2017 there will also be 10 additional Special stations Marconiane prefixed IY which will pass the identifier Y90ARI # (in this case # is a different number, from 1 to 10, depending on the station).

A. To obtain the Diploma you will have to contact stations in all the 20 Regions. In the case where a region is missing, it can be replaced by using one of the Special Headquarter stations or from a Marconian Special station. If there are two missing regions they may be replaced by a Special Headquarter Station and a Special Marconi Station.
B. Those stations who contacted all 20 regions plus at least a Headquarter Station or a Special Marconi Station (20 + 1) will be entered in the " ARI 90 YEARS Honor Roll ".
C. Those stations who contact all 20 regions plus at least a Headquarter Special station and at least one Special Marconi Station (20 + 1 + 1) will be entered in the " ARI 90 YEARS Super Honor Roll ".
D. The Award is available only as mixed band / mode. There is no endorsement of band or mode.

For non-Italian stations it will be possible to obtain the Diploma by contacting fewer regions, as follows:
European stations: 15 Italian Regions
DX stations: 10 Italian Regions
