General Rules

We changed the GCR rule in our award rules. Now we do not need two amateurs' verification so called GCR as we trust your (applicant's) oath that you have all QSL cards of the contacts listed is a must.
  1. JARL awards will be issued to amateur stations and SWLs.
  2. Each claim must be accompanied by a QSL Card List furnished with the callsigns of stations worked (heard), dates, bands and modes of the contacts (receptions) meeting the requirments of the award concerned. The form of list will be specified, when required, in the rules of each award.
