      New Amateur Radio Award for 2007.
      The Scouting 100 Radio Award is awarded for contacting Scout stations  
      during 2007, the Centenary year of Scouting.
      This is an International award - it is also available on a listener  
      basis, with the same requirements as the operator award.
      To help celebrate the centenary of Scouting through the medium of  
      radio. To help publicise the
      Centenary, and to provide radio amateurs the opportunity of gaining  
      another Award. Although not
      intended for profit, any surplus made will go to support Radio  
      Scouting in developing countries.
      The Award will begin at 00:00:01 on January 1st 2007 and finish at  
      23:59:59 December 31st 2007.
      Bands and Modes:
      The Award is available through all bands and all modes, within the  
      terms of the individual’s radio
      licence. The Award is also available through Echolink and IRLP modes.  
      The Award can be
      endorsed for any special modes or bands ie ‘All satellite contacts’;  
      ‘all QRP contacts’ etc.
      Activity for the Award should be focused around the Scout frequencies.
      Stations are required to contact Scout and Guide stations to count  
      for points as follows:
      Each ordinary Scout station counts one point. Special Event Scout  
      stations count 2 points. The
      World Jamboree, Gilwell Park and Brownsea Island stations count 5  
      Your logs should be verified as accurate by 2 other local radio  
      amateurs. Normal log information
      is required with the following additional information: Name, Scout  
      details and age of the
      operator of the station you contact. Your age should also be  
      submitted when applying for
      Awards. Female operators send ‘YL’ as their age!
      You can claim points for contacting Scouts stations regardless of the  
      callsign you are operating from...
      So if you are operating a club station, then the points still count  
      for your total.
      Please note: only the person operating can claim the points for that  
      contact, not everyone within earshot!
      The Award is supported online by a website - full details of the  
      award are available there.
      An Honour Roll of Award holders will also be published on the website.
