Today, I received two awards from SOTA Cyprus:
Beautifully printed, looking very nice. The “First Activation Award” is for first-activating 5B-summits, the “All HF-CW Award” comes for activating using HF - CW.
Both awards carry the number 0001!
Cyprus is a very nice association, geographically and radio-wise belonging to Asia, part of the EU, with a lot of good summits, beautiful hikes and friendly people. Definitely worth a visit for the travelling SOTA Activator.
Thanks a lot!
My asset has one first activation of the Cyprus Summit. How to apply for a diploma?
Congratulations on the awards and I must agree with you that Cyprus is a great place with lovely people and scenery and I would add great food!
How to apply for a diploma?
For the SOTA Cyprus awards rules check the 5B ARM.
I agree with the above comments – great country, friendly people, and good accessibility for many of the SOTA sites.
I will be living in Nicosia, Cyprus for the next few years and would be willing to loan out equipment for anyone who wants to avoid lugging equipment through airports.
I travel on business frequently, so I can’t guarantee being available on any particular weekend, but if I am around and free, I’m also happy to ferry visitors about. Please email me in advance (I’ll keep my contact information on my QRZ page up to date).

Quoting from the above link : “…
A request for an award is made by e-mail to the Association Manager. In the e-mail
the applicant should attach a list at which all the summits, dates and contacts are
recorded, as well as a brief description of the radio equipment used. …” Current manager email is 5b8ap [at] qsl.net
