    New Operating Award Celebrates QRZ’s 25th Anniversary

    It’s been three years since QRZ began our operating awards program and in that time, we have issued over 64,000 awards. We want to thank all of you who use the QRZ Logbook on a daily basis, and there are A LOT of you. At this time, QRZ logbooks contain over 245 Million QSOs!

    Our newest operating award is called the World Radio Friendship Award and is our first operating award issued solely based on communications between QRZ users. The award is achieved when an operator has successfully completed on-air contacts with 25 members of QRZ from around the world. The award celebrates QRZ’s 25th Anniversary by recognizing your achievements.

    We encourage you to take a look at the QRZ Awards Analyzer to see whether you qualify for the World Radio Friendship Award at this time or to see how many more contacts you’ll need to qualify.


    Thank you and 73 from the QRZ Team!

    QRZ Awards are FREE

    As a member of QRZ with a valid amateur radio license, you are eligible to earn awards based on your QRZ Logbook contents. Your QRZ operating awards show up on your callsign page in a special tab called "Awards". There is no requirement to become a QRZ Subscriber to earn operating awards.


    Fine lithographed QRZ award certificates are available at a modest cost.

    If you would like a handsomely lithographed and numbered certificate with QRZ's signature holographic seal of authenticity, you may order them directly from your callsign page. These certificates were custom designed for our members and have been reproduced on fine paper by a commercial printing company. They have a gorgeous, high quality look and feel that uniquely recognizes the hard work and dedication used in earning your award.


    Applying for an award is simple once you have the confirmed QSOs in your logbook!

    From your logbook, simply click "Awards," select the logbook(s) to use toward the award by following the instructions on that page, and select the award heading that you're interested in. From there you will be shown the analysis of your logbook for that award in the Mixed mode. If eligible, you will be presented with a Congratulations screen, and given the option to apply.

    To view a different mode, such as CW, Digital, or Phone, simply select the mode from the "Award Type" drop-down menu, and a new analysis will be completed. Like before, if you are eligible, you will be presented with a Congratulations screen, and given the option to apply.


    Note: Platinum Subscribers receive one complimentary certificate per year. Life Members are entitled to unlimited certificates.

    #173. Click the award banner or tab on the bio page for details.

    Amazing how quickly that number shot up in such a short time.
    I was also impressed that a quarter of my contacts (~10k) uses QRZ.com for logging.

    25 contacts seems kinda low. Perhaps add endorsements for 100, 500, 1000, 5000, etc?
