Maine County Award

Sponsored by the Yankee Radio Club

The award is given to amateurs who show evidence of working all the counties in Maine.   New England hams need to work 2 stations each county, any band any mode except repeaters.  The rest of the States and the world, need to work one station from each county.

Copies of QSLs are acceptable to submit and two General class or higher amateurs may review the cards and sign that they saw the cards in the operator’s hands.
This does not preclude us to request certain cards if required.

There is an endorsement for the county award using repeaters, but it can only be an endorsement after the original is issued.

Send application and $2.00 to:
