Sea of Peace Award 2018 (SOP) started!
If you want to get beautiful pennon or following your last year achievement you would like to continue to get sticker then you should turn on your radio and pay attention to the stations from the required countries during the July 2018...
This certificate in form of a silk pennon will be awarded for QSOs with the Baltic neighbouring states and regions in July. Annual stickers can be acquired for repeated fulfilment of the rules during the subsequent years.
Beyond coming SOP-owners will receive special recognitions after 5-and 10-times achievements of the pennon and stickers.
This popular certificate was awarded by the amateur radio organisation of the former GDR in 1958. And has been continuing by the DARC district Mecklenburg-West Pomerania since 1991.
In 2018 we celebrated 60 years of SOP with a special call signs DL60SOP.
Supplement for 2018: Foreign stations with the suffix "SOP" (e.g., OZ4SOP, SJ1SOP...) count as a joker for a not achieved area.
