    Not On The Air is a new awards program designed to facilitate contacts between hams who are no longer active in the hobby, because we know that being heard is important and so lets earn awards while we tell others what is wrong with the hobby.

    To qualify for this award, you need to have a qso with at least 10 inactive hams online on social media. Valid QSO's may use any of the following modes: ARRL hate, FT8 hate, newbies hate or someone touched me on the frequency and Baofengs, using on the following bands, QRZ, Eham, Facebook, Reddit, Twitter and Email.

    The rules of NOTA are simple, you may not use any ham radio gear to make the qso, full size keyboards count for regular contacts and smart phone predictive text counts as qrp contacts.

    Send your completed logs to the awards manager

    Real ham is salted and smoked in tiny Spanish mountain villages.
