2013 Contest Results Published!

There were some changes to the certificates beginning with the 2010 contest in order to make a wider range of certificates available, reduce costs, and speed up the delivery process:
  • Certificates are awarded to the winning station in each entry category, for each country and continent.
  • Participation certificates are awarded to every entrant that made at least one valid QSO in the contest.
  • All of the certificates have been published on-line as pdf files for entrants to download and print at their convenience.
  • The certificates will not be posted unless specifically requested in writing from entrants who made at least 10 valid QSOs and also won a category in their country. Any such requests must be submitted to the Contest Committee info@oceaniadxcontest.com  by 31 July 2014.
  • Participation certificates cannot be posted.
