RSARS3

The RSARS Awards Scheme recognises two classes of membership: “British Isles” operating from locations within “The British Isles”, and “Overseas” operating from outside “The British Isles”. Contacts made on and after 1st August 2004 are eligible. “The British Isles” is defined as one call area.
RSARS Awards are for three types of activity:- (1) General operating awards, (2) Annual achievement, and (3) Contest Awards. Trophies, plaques and certificates are awarded free of charge (except for postage) to fully paid-up members – Full, Associate or Affiliated.
Awards are based upon confirmed two-way contacts in a single mode. A contact is the unassisted exchange of callsigns, signal reports, names, locations and RSARS membership numbers. Contacts through repeaters do NOT count. Claims from listeners (UNLICENSED members ONLY) must be supported by the same verification as is required from licensed members. Please ensure that sufficient Postage is included with claims for return (NOT envelopes, please, because these need to be of the correct size for each certificate). Send postage in the form of UK postage stamps whenever possible – dollar bills are acceptable from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and USA. The Awards & Contests Manager will help in any cases of difficulty – Please do NOT send cheques..

Annual winners of these awards each receive an individual plaque as a permanent keepsake.

THE G3SIG AWARD

To claim The RSARS G3SIG Award necessitates working the station in each of 6 call areas of Great Britain. Successful contacts will automatically generate cards from G3SIG.  Members’ cards for contact with G3SIG are not required.

In order to generate more interest in this award, the original Affiliated number F005 was cancelled and the new number F099 was allocated which was effective from 1st March 2012.  A new certificate was designed and members are now able to work this award again and receive the new certificate once they have worked all of the 6 UK call areas.  

Claims for processing with a view to the issue to successful member claimants of the Certificate are managed by the G3SIG Award Manager – M0OIC
