OdgovorNapisal/-a s57xx » 12 Jun 2012, 06:17

1. GENERAL PROVISIONS

1. The awards are issued by Radio club SOTA Slovenia.

2. Only SOTA summits in Slovenia from 15. 6. 2008 on are valid.

3. The summit validity will be checked in the SOTA database, which can be found on the SOTA program web page (http://www.sotadata.org.uk/). Only summits verified by SOTA summits regulations are valid.

4. Deleted summits are not considered in the Honor Role (hereinafter referred to as HR) list; however, they are valid for the award request if necessary QSO’s have been made before the summit’s deletion. The HR list can be found on the web pages http://www.sota.si and forum.sota.si. The list is updated when necessary or at least four times per year. There are three separate lists: HF, UHF and MIXED. The type of work (CW, SSB, FM RTTY, etc.) is not significant.

5. In order to be placed on the HR list it is not necessary to meet the minimal demands for issue of the diploma. This means that even a station with 15 summits in only one area can be placed on the list. The summit validity for placing on the HR list is determined by the same criterion as for the awards (number of all QSO’s, number of different stations and number of stations in database).

6. The HR list keeps a register of the station’s call sing, the number of working regions and the number of working summits.

7. All award requests and HR list placing requests must be sent to the manager for diplomas containing the prescribed online form available on the web pages http://www.sota.si and forum.sota.si. The manager will examine the requests, confirm it or send it back to the applicant for further completion.

8. A fee covering the production and shipment costs is charged for issuing an award. Any surplus is intended for the operation of the RC SOTA Slovenia.

9. If someone merely wishes to appear on the HR list and does not wish to receive the award they must clearly indicate this wish on the request form. The entry on the HR list is free of charge.

10. The awards for summits on HF (160-10 m), UHF (6 m and higher) or MIXED (HF + UHF) are issued separately. When establishing contact the type of work is not significant. Connections via repeater and other active converters are not valid.

11. The awards contain the issue date, whereas the sequence number is not written. For higher degrees “stickers” are added to the award.

12. The applicant must collect all lower awards in order to request a higher degree award. Moreover, a request for multiple degree awards can be filed. The diploma is not necessary for issuing the trophy.
