United States Prefix Award

Award Rules

This award plaque is issued for contacting 200 different callsign prefixes assigned to the U.S. or its possessions. Endorsement plates for the plaque are available for each additional 50 new prefixes contacted. {Each 25 after the 600 prefix level}.

Any difference in the letters and numbers in the first part of a call denotes a new prefix. For example: AA1, AB1, K1, KA1, N1, W1 are all different prefixes.

Potable operation will not affect the prefix claimed. Only the prefix of the FCC assigned call may be counted. For stations operating in a state or possession which counts as a separate DXCC country you may count either the prefix in the assigned call, or the prefix in the portable identifier. For example: WV2B/KL7 could be counted for either WV2, or KL7. Both prefixes may be claimed if a second contact is made on a different band or mode, or on the same band/mode but after a time period of at least 24 hours has passed.

Contacts with stations outside the U.S., or maritime mobiles outside US territorial waters do not count for this award. For example: WV2B/VE1 or G/WV2B do not count because the station is not operating from the U.S.

Confirmations are not required for this award. Submit a computer or other list listing the prefixes you are claiming as follows: Call worked, Band, Mode in alphabetical order by prefix. Please number the contacts so a total can be quickly determined.

With your list of prefixes, submit a signed statement as follows: I certify upon my honor that the contacts listed have been made in the manner represented, and that I have obeyed the awards rules and all Amateur Radio rules as set forth by my licensing authority while making these contacts. Signature- Date-

Awards may be endorsed to reflect your operating accomplishments. For example: CW, SSB, Single Band, Mobile, etc.

Contacts may be made from any station location, during any span of time, and using any callsigns issued to you by a licensing authority. SWLs may apply on a heard basis.
