IRELAND                                St. Patrick’s Day Award
On Saint Patrick’s Day, we’re all Irish, or if we are not Irish, then get a chance to imitate their optimism and good nature. Look for stations (Irish or not) all day long on March 17th. Contact these stations during the 24 hour (0000Z - 0000Z) period on March 17, 2014.
The sponsor is looking for volunteers to be the station which is giving out contacts, so here is your chance to play in the pile up game. You do have to be approved by the sponsor, and accept the fact that you will have to take part and participate in the activity entirely at your risk.
(The sponsor’s guidelines are: "Please make sure that your event has adequate public liability insurance. Members of clubs affiliated to the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) will be covered under the RSGB Club Insurance scheme. A copy of the certificate of insurance, policy documents and frequently asked questions can be found on the RSGB’s Club Insurance pages, make sure you print a copy of the documents and have them with you during your event."). [Since you are not engaged in any commercial activity, I would suggest that in the USA, your HomeOwners or Apartment Renters insurance policy provides public liability insurance for your hobby of amateur radio.)
There are several categories of operation by which you may be able to earn the award. They are:
1.Saint Patrick’s Day (SPD) Station Award
: you must be a registered St Patrick Day Station, and have transmitted on the March 17th as part of the St Patrick Award.
2. Fixed Station Award - you must make direct two way communication with a minimum of 10 SPD award stations from a fixed location using either mixed modes or CW only.
3. Mobile Station Award - you must make direct two way communication with a minimum of 5 SPD award stations from a mobile location using either mixed modes or CW only .
4. Short Wave Listener Award - you must log two way communications between a minimum of 10 SPD award stations utilizing any mode
Your award application should be in the form of a log in ADIF format. ADIF files are commonly used in contest software, and are sometimes required in award applications. A very simple program which will generate an ADIF file written by DF3CB, can be found at http://www.df3cb.com/fle/ . You can learn everything about it in about 5 minutes and is highly recommended. The award is an "e-award" which will be sent to your e-mail address at NO charge.
The award is being organized by the Regional team in Region 8 of the RSGB ( Radio Society of Great Britain)
