Plaques & Sponsors

Thanks to the following sponsors!  If you would like to sponsor a plaque, please contact Mike Sims, K4GMH.  Cost is $65.  Sponsors have first-right-of-refusal for next year's plaques. 

SO DXpedition, I2UIY Memorial

This plaque is sponsored annually by CQ WW Advisory Committee for the CQWW RTTY Contest in memory of Paolo Cortese, I2UIY.  (A similar plaque will also be awarded annually for the CQ WPX RTTY Contest.)  The recipient will be chosen by the CQ RTTY Contest Committee from among all single-operator entries from DXpeditions in that year's contest.  Final score is only one aspect considered in determining the recipient.  Difficulty of the endeavor, rarity of location, contribution to the local environment, etc. are all factors that are important in determining the winner.  Paolo himself made many contest DXpeditions, setting records and regaling his hosts with his jovial, effervescent personality.
