AMRS Award

The AMRS AWARD is an official award of ÖVSV, published by the AUSTRIAN MILITARY RADIO SOCIETY (AMRS) and considered of being one of the nicest looking awards in Austria. If you would like to go for it, here are the rules.

  1. You need a score of 20 points (Austrians need 30 points)

  2. Valid are all contacts since 1st of January 1961

  3. Each AMRS member may be worked as often as you like but counts only 1 (one) point per band and mode. But WATCH OUT there is an exception (see point 6)

  4. Worked AMRS Club Stations, Contest Stations and Special Event Calls will count 2 (two) points per band and mode. As already mentioned in pt. 2 "Valid are all contacts since 1st of January 1961 " we have them listed below:
     
    OE50AMRS, OE1XBH, OE1XRC, OE1XRC/90KK, OE1C, OE2XCW, OE2XCW/90KK, OE50XCW, OE2XRM, OE2XRM/90KK, OE50XRM, OE2E, OE2M, OE3XBH, OE3XMA, OE3XXS, OE50XMA, OE3XRC, OE3XRC/90KK, OE3C, OE3K, OE3L, OE4XBH, OE4XBJ, OE4XLC, OE4XRC, OE4XRC/90KK, OE50XRC, OE4A, OE4C, OE5XAM, OE5XAM/90KK, OE50XAM, OE5XCL, OE5XCL/90KK, OE50XCL, OE7XBH, OE7XBH/90KK, OE7XBH/WM05, OE7B, OE7F, OE8XBH, OE8XRC/90KK, OE2008B, OE2008C, OE2008P, OE2013B, OE2013C, OE2013E, OE2013F, OE2013K, OE2013P und OE17WCB.

  5.  AMRS stations abroad either on military duty or even on vacation somewhere in the world counts for 3 (three) points. QSOs with an AMRS station via satellite or EME count also 3 (three) points. Special calls E711AMRS and IK5/OE1XRC.
     
  6. If you work a certain AMRS member on DIFFERENT locations, EACH contact gives you 1 (one) or even MORE POINTS. e.g.
     
    OE8HFL (located in AUSTRIA) 1 Point
    OE8HFL/5B4 (located in CYPRUS) 3 Points
    5B4IJ (= OE8HFL) (located in CYPRUS) 3 Points
    OE8HFL/YK (located in SYRIA) 3 Points
    As a matter of fact you worked always the same operator OE8HFL but you get 10 (ten) points for it. It is the callsign plus location that counts and NOT the operator!

  7.  The award may be worked by any licensed or SWL station over the world. Any mode or band would be OK. This includes ALL the different digital modes as well - PACKET RADIO und ECHOLINK are NOT accepted.
     
  8. One my apply for it in SINGLE- or MIXED mode.
    Please send your application together with an excerpt of your LOG signed by 2 (two) fellow HAMs of your own choice to the AMRS AWARD Manager.
