f1award.ru - no plaques, no replies, funds grabbed... Ham radio is not fair-play game anymore?!

Hi all,

maybe you still remember the Ham Formula One awards and plaques activity in 2014. It was perfectly managed on-line and the score as same as reached awards and plaques has been on-line available on the f1award.ru webpage. 

Did You received Your ordered plaques already?! I paid for ordered plaque (wall clock in my case) almost year ago but I never received anything until now. No replies for my several emails to award manager...


I tried this link: 
> now it is down...

I tried this: 

> down of course...

Emailed several times to:  

> no response.

In MegaLog merchant I was able to find my order 

> now it is down.

I emailed to: Oleg Lebedev; elebedev at gmail at com and he replied to me that he can help me with shipment. The package should be shipped 10/8/2015. Nothing arrived until now. No responses, no tracking...

I also tried email to: rx6lql at gmail dot com but no reply from him too.

I will try to email them again. Maybe they missed my last messages.

If you are interresting in discussions or threads where I tried to share it then check it here:



Thank You for comments, experiences... but in general the most important is to pay big attention where and whom you are sending your money. The Ham radio is not fair-play game anymore it seems...

  1. Hi Peter,
    Although your misfortunate experience with this Russian award happened quite a long time ago, I am going to try to help you to resolve this issue. Please let me know who is Oleg Lebedev? Is he the one responsible? What is his call sign? What is the relation of RX6LQL to this award? Is he the award manager? I assume all this was organized by some people in Sochi. Is that right? I have some friends there who I am going to contact but I need clear picture to understand who is responsible for not sending you your clock. We should not tolerate things like that so I will do all I can to help you out.
