Jim K1ZX asked:
"Is there an award for working grid squares at HF?"
Then answered his own question with:
"NO.........so, if you have interest in a contest based on squares at
HF then you will probably also need to sponsor an award for squares at
HF......you get where I am coming from?"
As several others have mentioned, such an award DOES exist, the Swedish SSA's
"Field Award". Details are available on the ARRL Operating Manual (1987
edition) pp. 8-52 and 8-53. I believe it was also publicized in CQ's awards
column several years ago, but I cannot provide a reference.
The award exists, but it hasn't yet fired the imaginations of many. Maybe
the contest will help popularize the award.
