FOC 75th Anniversary Award received..

FOC 75 Award

To commemorate our 75th anniversary in May FOC is holding a month-long on-air event featuring more than 50 special FOC-suffix calls.  These will include GB75FOC, a special anniversary call for our club station.  (GC4FOC will be used when operating from Wales, GH4FOC from Jersey,  GN4FOC from Northern Ireland, GP4FOC from Guernsey, GS4FOC from Scotland, and GT4FOC from Isle of Man).A list of who is on the key of each special UK call each day can be found here. There will be many other FOC calls on the air all month from outside the UK, including some exotic locations such as 4X, 5B, 5T, 7Q, A6, HZ, KH6, V3 and VQ9.

Stations will gain points for contacting any FOC member and a beautiful certificate will be presented to stations who reach certain point levels.  


15 points = Bronze, 30 points = Silver, 50 points = Gold.

QSO with an FOC member = 1 point

QSO with an FOC member lasting 10 minutes or longer = 3 points

QSO with an FOC suffix station (or M0RSE) = 5 points

QSO with GB75FOC, GC4FOC, GH4FOC, GN4FOC, GP4FOC, GS4FOC or GT4FOC = 10 points

One QSO is allowed per station per band. All bands are allowed but QSOs must be CW, of course.
