Cervantes Award 2016

I am glad to inform you about this new event organized by URE.

URE invites all HAMs and SWLers worldwide to participate in this amazing
Special Award and Diploma.

A total of 14 Special Event Stations with the prefix AN400 will be on the
air to commemorate the 400 anniversary of the death of Cervantes, who is
widely regarded as the greatest writer in the Spanish language and one of
the world’s pre-eminent novelists. His most iconic novel, “Don Quixote” is
the most edited and translated book in all Literature History, just behind
The Bible.

The Spacial Event Stations will hold the prefix AN400, which has never
been issued before. The suffixes of all callsigns consist of a single
letter, forming among all of them the 14 letters of the name of MIGUEL DE
CERVANTES. And so, the 14 special station callsigns are:

AN400M, AN400I, AN400G, AN400U, AN400E, AN400L, AN400D, AN400C, AN400R,
AN400V, AN400A, AN400N, AN400T, AN400S

All Special Event Stations will use all HF bands and all modes (SSB, CW and digital modes)

Diplomas will be freely issued (PDF) to all hams (and SWLers) that
accomplish a certain number of contacts (all HF bands, all modes) with the
14 different AN400x stations in three categories: Silver, Gold and
Platinum.

The top participants per number of contacts with the 14 AN400x Special
Event Stations will receive freely a Special Medallion in high quality
crystal, personalized with their name and callsign. Medallions will be
sent free of cost in the following categories:

-Top 20 stations World
-Top 5 stations North America
-Top 5 stations South America
-Top 5 stations Africa
-Top 5 stations Asia
-Top 5 stations Oceania

All participants can follow their progress chasing the Special Event Stations on a daily basis checking the log online at the organization’s webpage.
