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 RSARS G3SIG AWARD


G3SIG is held by Bryan M0OIC on behalf of members of the Royal Signals
Amateur Radio Society. (RSARS) It is the callsign used for the RSARS G3SIG
Award and had operated with the affiliated number of F005 since January
Proof of contacts are not required by M0OIC as he receives all G3SIG logs
and duplicates onto index cards. When the card shows that all areas have
been worked a certificate will be sent to you as a PDF file.
Breaking News: For those who enjoy chasing awards I have taken note of
requests from members and a second certificate is to be made available
for those interested. Same rules apply but stations worked can only be
claimed once so others, dated from latest certificate issued to you are the
only ones eligible. The certificate will be same size and orientation,
slightly changed but shown as G3SIG F099 (STA) – – – Second Time
Around.
As coordinator I am happy for non-RSARS members to work operators.
Applications are not needed as ALL G?3SIG logbooks are held by me, plus
an index card record card, and soon as you have all areas worked I will
send PDF certificate to you by email.
Awards Manager’s is decision is final 🙂
