Venca Nemecek OKL007 This appeared in swl.czechian.net.  GAPA  Diploma Program Hi guys, I know that you drive digital kinds of traffic, so I would like to draw your attention to the GAPA diploma program. This extensive project appealed to me, so I applied for a diploma "BASIC", which is mandatory and is a mix of fashion, plus stickers beyond the bands 160, 40, 30, 17, 15, 12 and 6m, all operating FT8 (FT4).
I have fulfilled the 80m and 60m bands and I will send it to him soon. The only band I haven't met yet is 10m. And then I'll have a sticker for all "WAB" bands. Another thing is the continents, so far I have asked for the EU and AS, the rest I have not yet confirmed eQSL.
Other diplomas are for DXCC countries, and others for prefixes. The advantage is that QSLs are not sent ANYWHERE, just confirmed eQSL, LoTW, CLUB log, etc. Everything is done by email, and Ernie WM2U handles it quickly, and if you make it easier for him, like me, with a clear spreadsheet in Excel, it's a matter of 1-2 days. And the price of diplomas ? Ridiculous, I sent him $30, and he told me that I had an overpayment of $15 for all this, and that includes postage from the US. And most importantly!! It's also for SWL! Under the same conditions. Here is the link, and let me know how you like it.
