They just keep on coming ...

Awards and Trophies applied online through DARC's DCL web site just keep arriving in the mailbox !!

Today, it was the turn of EU-DX-D 1000 Trophy to arrive.

Dietmar, DL3DXX, was super fast and accurate on checking my application, approving it, providing for fees and shipment info, and shipping it to me.

So, now I am proud owner of EU-DX-D 1000 Trophy Plaque with serial number 122 in Mixed Mode, the two sides of which you may check out hereafter:

Accompanying the EU-DX-D 1000 Trophy, Dietmar included also a beautiful DARC badge with the EU-DX-D logo engraved:

and, of course, the EU-DX-D Diplom, with the relevant 50-point stickers (that is, 20 pieces x 50 points = 1000 points !!):

If you, too, want to check if you can apply for this nice set of trophies/awards, visit the related site of EU-DX-D Diplom here.

The EU-DX-D 1000 Trophy plaque and the EU-DX-D badge are also presented in "My Trophies" page in "My Pages" section at the right column of this blog.

Until the next one ...

DARC Sea Of Peace Pennon has arrived !!

During my several awards/trophies applications through DARC DCL online system, Georg DL4SVA mentioned that maybe DARC - Mecklenburg Section's Sea Of Peace Pennon might interest me.

It did ...

And, after reading the rules here, I used the online tool available here to enter the required QSO data ... as simple as that !! In a week's time I received the so nice pennon in my mailbox. Just take a look below:

It is relatively easy to acquire this nice pennon, so go ahead and read the rules in the link above and check whether you are liable to apply for it.

Georg will help you throughout the whole process, if needed.

Tnx fer ur fine service, Georg!

Europa RTTY Diplom TROPHY serial number acquired !!

Following last week's post here's an update:

DARC DCL finalized the status of my application for the Europa RTTY Diplom (EURD) Trophy and provided for an online printout of the relevant paper award.

As you may notice, I've acquired Trophy nr. 125 and now I am waiting impatiently for it to arrive and decorate my Trophies shelf.

Thanks Peter for a great service!

Visit my blog frequently for a newer update with photos of the EURD Trophy itself !!

Beautiful Trophies arrived in the mailbox at the same day !!

Just yesterday, I found in the mailbox 2 envelopes from Germany, rather big.

One was a beautiful Trophy by DARC, the EUROPA-DIPLOM EUROPA 300 Trophy Plaque, with my callsign and number 369 engraved.

The second was DARC's DLD 300 Standard Diplom for Mixed Mode 15m only QSOs with at least 300 different DL DOKs, and award number 32117. Included with this award, as with all DLD awards with over 300 DOKs confirmed, was a beautiful Lapel Pin with a large DARC logo and "DLD 300" addon side text.

Below you may see these nice Trophies / Awards and also at "My Trophies" section of this blog, at the right side of your screen, under "My Pages" section:

All of these Trophies / Awards, were applied for online through DARC's DCL (DARC Contest Logbook). DCL guys have done a magnificent job integrating DCL system with LotW confirmed QSOs, so one can automatically check whether one can apply for a certain award/trophy or not, and in which class. I find DCL a great tool, both for the German awards hunters, but also for the casual contesters.
I urge everyone, especially those of you that are LotW users, to enroll in DCL by visiting their home page here , registration is fast and easy, and check which of available supported awards here you are eligible to apply for. Currently, 19 awards with their relevant trophies (where applicable) are supported in DCL, but I am sure in the future they will add more.

FYI, I have already applied for and had my applications checked and accepted for the following Trophies, which I expect to arrive soon:

- WAE (Worked All Europe) TOP Plaque in Mixed Mode

- Europa RTTY Diplom (EURD) Trophy, which is a really fine Trophy to decorate my Trophies/Awards corner.

Keep up with my blog to find out when those two arrive and how they look.
