Click here for italian version

A.R.I. Fidenza and the Marconi Museum (Guglielmo Marconi Foundation - Bologna (http://www.fgm.it/) are pleased to present this initiative, unique in its kind and unpublished in Italy, which aims to disseminate the knowledge of the major Italian pioneers in wireless and radio technology, or the main artifices of those fundamental discoveries and practical achievements (devices and methodologies) that have made possible the birth of wireless communications and subsequent progress in radio technology.

As mentioned, the event is organized in collaboration with the Marconi Museum which oversaw the part of counseling and historical - biographical research, identifying the first twelve scientists (or entities) that will be celebrated during 2019.

Operationally, the initiative aims at the international activation, during the entire 2019, of twelve commemorative radio stations with special ham radio callsigns, which will alternate in turn throughout the year: each month is dedicated to a specific scientist.

INTERNATIONAL RADIOAMATEUR AWARD

“ITALIAN PIONEERS IN RADIO ENGINEERING”

YEAR 2019
GENERAL RULES

“ITALIAN PIONEERS IN RADIO ENGINEERING” is an international, worldwide award organized by A.R.I. Fidenza, a Radio Club affiliated to A.R.I., Associazione Radioamatori Italiani (Italian Radioamateur League), aimed to honour and commemorate some of the most eminent Italian inventors in the field of the technology applied to Radio who have given a paramount, contribution to the discoveries, inventions and practical applications which, in turn, allowed the huge improvement of the radio communication technology during the XX th century.
The award period lasts the whole year 2019 : every month of the year is dedicated to one specific inventor, and is associated to a different special callsign.listed in Table 1.

OBJECTIVE
 To make as many QSO as possible with the "special commemorative stations” listed in Table 1.

“JOLLY” STATION
In addition to the monthly special callsign listed in Table 1, during the whole year 2019 the “Jolly station” IQ4FE will be also randomly active on the air.
The contacts with this station will allow to recover up to a maximum of two not contacted monthly callsigns, according to the following rule:
To recover 1 monthly special callsign: at least 6 QSOs with IQ4FE during the year are required;
To recover 2 monthly special callsigns: at least 12 QSOs with IQ4FE during the year are required;

PERIOD OF OPERATION
From 00.01 UTC of January 1 st, 2019 to 23.59 UTC of December 31st, 2019

PARTICIPANTS
 The award is worldwide, open to all Radioamateurs in the world

BANDS
1.8, 3.5, 5, 7, 10, 14, 18, 21, 24, 28, 50, 144 e 430 MHz:
160, 80, 60, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10, 6, 2 e 0,7 meters

EMISSION MODES
CW, SSB and all admitted digital modes, e.g. : RTTY, FT8, JT65, JT9, PSK.

RS(T) EXCHANGE
 RS(T) report only.

LIMITATIONS AND DUPE QSOs

 Each commemorative station can be contacted by the same station (callsign) only one time per day on the same band and using the same emission mode. Any additional contact with the same station on the same day, on the same band and using the same emission mode will be considered as a DUPE QSO, and its score will be set to zero points.

PARTICIPATION CATEGORIES
3 QTH categories and 2 Power categories are established.

QTH CATEGORIES:
Italian Stations
European, NOT italian stations
Extra european stations

POWER CATEGORIES
QRP stations, with output power ≤ 5 W
NOT QRP stations, with output power > 5 W within the legal power limits allowed in the relevant country

SINGLE QSO SCORE
To each of the 6 possible category combinations, the score assigned to each valid (not dupe) QSO is defined according to the rule resumed in the following table:



SCORE

MONTHLY TOTAL SCORE
For each participating station, the total monthly score PM will be calculated as follows:
PM = S•N
where S is the overall monthly score, that is, the sum of the scores of all QSOs performed in the relevant month, and N is the total number of QSOs performed in that month.

The multiplying factor N is introduced with the aim to encourage participation and assiduity on the air, “rewarding” the most perseverant stations being equal the total number of QSOs made with the monthly activating stations, according to the score assignment rule by category (A, B, C, see below).

OVERALL ANNUAL SCORE
For each participating station, the overall annual score PT will be calculated as the sum of all 12 monthly scores PM obtained over the whole year.

LOG ONLINE MANAGEMENT AND SCORE CHECK
The logs of the special commemorative stations will be uploaded to the website
 
http://arifidenza.hamlogs.net/
 on a regular basis: as a general rule, within the 10 th day of every month all logs with the call sign valid during the previous month will be uploaded and made available on line, in order to allow to the participants to periodically check their reached score.
All logs will be uploaded within January 31st, 2020.

SCORE RANKING CATHEGORIES
Three ranking categories are defined, as follows:

Category C: Stations having reached a minimum score of 500 points, contacting at least 4 out of 12 A.R.I. Fidenza commemorative stations, each of them on at least 3 frequency bands;

Category B: Stations having reached a minimum score of 1000 points, contacting at least 8 out of 12 A.R.I. Fidenza commemorative stations, each of them on at least 3 frequency bands;

Category A: Stations having reached a minimum score of 2000 points, contacting all 12 A.R.I. Fidenza commemorative stations, each of them on at least 3 frequency bands.

The special “participation category” P is also established, for which a “participation certificate” is foreseen, which will be assigned to all participant stations having collected at least 120 QSOs with the A.R.I. Fidenza commemorating stations and/or with the “Jolly station” IQ4FE, regardless of the score obtained according to the scoring rule by category A, B and C.

AWARD FORMAT
For each of the three score categories, the relevant award will be automatically made available for view and download from
