Kernow Award

Calendar Year 2016

From 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2016, radio amateurs with a main address in the County of Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly may apply to add the letter ‘K’ as a Regional Secondary Locator (RSL). E.g G3UCQ becomes GK3UCQ.

The "K" is Celtic for Cornwall.

In April, 2014 The U.K. Government announced that the proud history, unique culture, and distinctive language of Cornwall would be fully recognised under European rules for the protection of national minorities. The decision to recognise the unique identity of the Cornish, now affords the County the same status under the European Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities as the UK’s other Celtic people, the Scots, the Welsh and the Irish.

OfCom have agreed to allow the use of the special prefix for a period of one year to allow radio amateurs, with a main address in Cornwall, to add the letter K to their call signs and to celebrate the unique status of the County.
