IRTS 70 MHz (4 m) Awards

To celebrate the adoption of the band 69.9 MHz – 70.5 MHz as a secondary amateur allocation in the European Common (frequency) Allocation Table and Ireland’s significant involvement in the process, IRTS as the national IARU member society in Ireland is pleased to launch two new 4 m awards.

The purpose of the awards is to recognise and promote DX achievements by amateur radio operators interested in the range 69 MHz – 74 MHz. In-band and cross-band awards are available. Log extracts are required and there is currently no charge for the awards. The awards will be available from 1 January 2015.

A PDF document providing full details of the award and how to apply can be downloaded from the IRTS web-site.
