HamSphere 4.0 DXHC Awards
We give out Awards for QSO achievements. To participate in this Club you will need to establish two-way contacts with operators in as many countries as possible on the HamSphere virtual Amateur Radio bands. Each contact needs to be verified by sending and receiving a QSL card via the built in QSL-Management system in HamSphere as of the start of the management system.

To see your current confirmed country level, please visit your Your Log Statistics page (Needs login)

HamSphere 4.0 rates your TOP-1000 level based on "points". Our point system is based on both QSO's, awards, bands, activity and distance. In the table below you will find the different point levels for different situations.

Cross Platform Awards

 
IDX Net Dual Platform Award is a first of its kind on HamSphere which encourages operator participation and activity on both HS3 and HS4. Unlike all other awards, this award provides an opportunity to HamSphere operators to not only work DX on HF radio bands of HS4 but also enable them at each step to understand various associated physical phenomenon, underlying propagation behavior, optimum selection and use of antennas, and all the whys, whats and hows of HF radio communication. Rather than making contacts without really knowing why they happened, the IDX Net Award paradigm lets the operator dig into the true reasons of success or failure; and consequently achieve a greater sense of accomplishment by expanding heir horizons and knowledgebase. This would eventually not only help people become better HS4 HF operators but will bring them closer to the real world of HF radio. Operators will find themselves better equipped to face any real challenges of amateur radio communications.

For the purpose of IDX Net Dual Platform Award, operators would be required to join and actively participate in discussions conducted on IDX Net on HS3 as often as possible. Active participation means not just checking into the net but to either engage productively in ongoing discussions, or table new topics for discussion, or to ask genuine questions to clarify or understand any ham radio communication related matter. Any instance of active participation on IDX Net will be acknowledged by the net controller with a specially coded QSL card. This coded QSL card will earn the operator a 48 hour time window from the date of issue of the card. During the entire 48 hour time window, the operator will be eligible to work as many stations on HS4 HF bands as one wishes. All HS4 HF band QSOs conducted by the operator during this period will be counted towards this award subject to the following eligibility requirements. Only one QSO with any operator will be permitted in one UTC day. Working multiple bands with the same operator on a day will only count as one QSO. Each eligible QSO must be over a distance greater than 2000 Km. Any QSO made in a contest will not be eligible for this award. More the number of IDX Net sessions on which an operator actively participates, the more will be the number of new 48 hour windows available to the operator spread over weeks and months. This will enable the operator to accumulate eligible contacts to eventually attain the award.

IDX Net Dual Platform Award Rules

1) Check-in to IDX Net on HS3.

2) Actively participate in the proceedings of the IDX Net session. Active participation will be construed as either engaging productively in ongoing discussions, or to table new topics for discussion, or to ask genuine questions to clarify or understand any ham radio communication related matter.

3) Unlike a normal QSL card issued generally to checked-in operators by the net controller, the active participants will receive a secret coded QSL card which will provide a 48 hour time window on HS4 making HS4 HF QSOs eligible for the purpose of this award, subject to the following restrictions. The HS4 time window eligibility cards will carry a statement on the card acknowledging "Fruitful discussion".

4) HS4 QSO Eligibility Criteria:

a) HS4 two-way valid QSO on any HF band from 160-10m.
b) Only HS4 contacts made within the IDX Net generated 48 hour/session window are eligible.
c) Each QSO must be with another station at a distance >2000 Km.
d) One QSO with same station is eligible in a day irrespective of QSO on multiple bands.
e) QSO carried out in any contest will not be eligible.

5) 2500 valid HS4 QSO in accordance with the rules will qualify for "IDX Net Dual Platform Award"
