Dear TRLog Users,
We are inviting you to join the European PSK Club (or more commonly "EPC").
Its purpose is to promote activity and good operating practice on the PSK
mode(s) on all amateur bands. Membership is FREE for any licensed radio amateur
or SWL. All of our managers serve on a voluntary basis. A high quality and
colorful membership certificate in PDF format is sent via email to new members
when membership is granted. Each new member is assigned a unique "EPC Number"
which is retained for life, regardless of a change of callsign. A EPC number is
never re-issued and it is listed in the Membership records forever. All EPC
members are eligible to participate in various club's activities and award
programmes. Please pass this information to others you think might be
interested in joining our club.
The following questions are most commonly asked by those interested in the EPC
or by new members:
What are the benefits in belonging to the European PSK Club?
- The EPC is like any other HAM radio organization, a group of HAMs who are
interested in promoting PSK mode(s). In order to keep interest up on the PSK
mode(s), the idea of collecting "EPC Numbers" has been developing. Personally,
each member enjoys the camaraderie of kindred spirits, whether the activity is
informal rag chewing or numbers chasing or a more formal EU PSK DX Contest or
QSO Party. Since 10th June 2006 all EU PSK awards will be issued in high
quality PDF format and sent via email to the applicants. All EU PSK awards
could be printed then correctly, with the highest quality and with optimal
performance by applicants themselves. In an effort to make EU PSK Award
Programme more affordable to PSK enthusiasts, we have provided EPC members the
opportunity to get all EU PSK awards FREE of charge, and EU PSK badges at a
special 30% member discount price. Please visit http://eu.srars.org for more
How do I join and where do I get my EPC number?
- Any licensed amateur authorized to operate PSK mode(s) or SWL can join EPC.
There are no special requirements. Just send your information (callsign, name,
address and email) to firstname.lastname@example.org We will assign you a EPC number and send
it to you along with your membership certificate.
What do I do with my EPC number now that I have received it?
- You can exchange it with other EPC members (on PSK mode(s), of course) and
keep a record of their number. We are planning numerous awards for collecting
EPC numbers. You can just give your number to others when asked for it. It is
strictly up to you as to how involved you want to get in EPC and EU PSK Award
What happens to my EPC number if for some reason I lose interest in EPC?
- Once you are issued a EPC number, it is yours for life. If you decide to not
participate in EPC and EU PSK Award Programme, your number is still yours. You
can still give it to other EPC members and you can still collect numbers
