AZERBAIJAN   


The Radio Club of the Russian Community in Azerbaijan is marking the 90th anniversary of the first amateur radio station, which used the call sign "RA-29" in 1926. The club station was opened in a school in the German colony Helenendorf (presently Goygol) of the Ganja District in Azerbaijan. Three Awards will be issued to commemorate this anniversary: "Azerbaijan HAM RADIO-90" , "HELENENDORF-1926", and "RA-29" .

We also announce a radio marathon for the participants who will compete to establish the highest possible number of QSO’s with the amateur radio stations of Azerbaijan (4J and 4K prefixes) from 01.01. to 31.12.2016. Any band/mode QSO combination with the same station will count separately. Winners will be identified separately for continents, European and Asian parts of the Russian Federation, and Germany. Special Awards and souvenirs will be granted to the winners in those radio marathon categories.

"Azerbaijan HAM RADIO-90"
Collect at least 90 points during 2016. A QSO with a regular 4J or 4K station counts for 5 pts. A QSO with a special event station, using the prefix 4J90, 4K90, 4J1926, 4K1926, or the 4J/RA29, 4JRA29, 4K/RA29, 4KRA29 stations counts for 10 pts. Points are doubled for the stations located in Africa, South and North America, Oceania, and the Asian part of the Russian Federation. Any band/mode QSO combination with the same station will count separately. This Award will also be granted with a VHF band endorsement for one QSO made in the 2 m or 70 cm band. Similar conditions apply to SWL’s. Awards will be issued in electronic or paper versions. To obtain the Award in an electronic format, please send your application to: 4k8m@mail.ru .

The Award commemorates the first radio amateurs of Azerbaijan. Make at least two QSO’s with special events stations: 4JRA29 (4J/RA29) and 4KRA29 (4K/RA29). Repeat contacts do not count. Special "RA-29 STAR" Award will be granted for making 4 QSO’s with those stations. These Awards are issued only in the A-4 paper version.

"HELENENDORF-1926"
The Award commemorates the first radio amateurs of Azerbaijan: the German colonists of Helenendorf, who arrived as migrants from Wirtemberg (1819-1940). The radio amateurs from Europe and Asia should make at least 5 QSO’s and those from North and South America, Oceania, and the Asian part of the Russian Federation 3 QSO’s with the special-event stations:

(The fees will help to support the development of our Radio Clubs (4J4K, 4J6RO, 4J0SFR). Since we do not know the names of the German migrants, we will appreciate any information from our DL friends on possible historical records on Helenendorf. This would help us to understand better the history of amateur radio in Azerbaijan.)
