Between the 1st and the 10th of August 2014, the city of Suceava, Romania, is hosting the 8th annual edition of the International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics – http://www.ioaa2014.ro. The event will take place at the Stefan cel Mare University of Suceava and will bring together participants from more than 40 countries.
The amateur radio operators from the Suceava County are promoting this event by giving an award certificate to ham operators worldwide who, between February 1st and August 12th 2014, gather 50 points by making two way contacts with specific stations in the Suceava area (see the stations and points list below) and a compulsory contact with the special callsign YR8IOAA. Contacts made in all modes and bands (HF, VHF and up) count towards the award. SWLs are also eligible for the award. However, only the complete contact entries are valid, meaning that a valid log entry must contain both station's calls (the SWL needs to hear them both).
In order to obtain the award, a total of 50 points must be acquired and at least one valid contact with the special call (YR8IOAA).
The award in electronic format is free of charge and can be obtained by sending the request and the log at email@example.com.
The paper award can be obtained by sending by mail the request and the paper log at the address:
The price of the paper award is 2 Euro, 2IRC or 3 USD.
