The receiving of baptism in 966 by the then ruler of Poland – Prince Mieszko I was a very important event in Polish history. This date is considered as the beginning of the existence of the Polish state. By receiving baptism in 966, Mieszko I ensured for Poland a place among the countries of the Christian Europe, – thereby protecting it from forced Christianisation and this event did also contribute to unification of the state.

To celebrate this great event – on the 1050th anniversary of the Baptism of Poland, a group of Polish radio amateurs and the Polish Amateur Radio Union (PZK) – has organized from the 1st to 30th of April a radio action during which it will be possible to achieve a commemorative short term award, for contacts with special event stations of the organizer.
