This year 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the 1992 Universal Exposition in Seville and 525 years since the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus, the main reason for the organization of this Universal Exhibition.

     To commemorate this important event, the sections of URE, URS Union of Radio Amateurs of Seville and URO Union Radio Orippo of Dos Hermanas, launch the following Special Award, for the participation of all licensed amateur radio or SWL from around the world.

     The contacts made in any mode or band from 80 meters to 10 meters with the special station AN92EXPO will be valid.


          Period of operation

     From 2 (00.00Z) to 12 (24.00Z) from October 2017

          Claims Period

      From 13 (00.00Z) to 20 (24.00Z) from October 2017


     A diploma will be awarded to the participating stations that contact the special station AN92EXPO in 5 Slots (5 different QSO). The number of unique contacts achieved (band and Slots) and the position in the ranking will be reflected in the Award.

     The Awards will be available upon completion of the above stated claim period.

     The consultation of the online log and the position of the participants in the ranking of QSOs can be followed daily on the website http://www.ea7urs.es/expo92

     The log will be updated every 24 hours. It is recommended to try to repeat the contact if a station is not in the online log.


     A commemorative trophy will be drawn from the set of participants who get more unique contacts (band and Slots) with the special season.


     For the elaboration of the rankings will be validated the communications in each one of the three modes 1.-Phone, 2.-Telegraphy and 3.-Digital modes (RTTY and PSK), as well as in each one of the bands of 80m , 40m, 30m (telegraphy and digital modes only), 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m and 10m.

     Each mode and band combination counts only the first time it is performed. Duplicate contacts do not count in the ranking calculation. However contacts in different digital modes (RTTY, PSK 31, 63 and 125) will be taken into account for ranking. In case of tie in the ranking by number of QSOs the station that previously made the last contact prevails.

     As of October 20, 2017, each diploma will include the number of the position reached in the general ranking.

     It is not necessary to send lists of QSOs as the log will be available on the web.


     SWLs must send their list of received stations to the address an92expo@ea7urs.es until October 20, 2017 and the Diploma will be sent by email.

      All participants accept these rules and in any case the decision of the organizing committee of the event.
