GMA - Global Mountain Award
Mountain radio without if's and buts. Any summit 100m and more above sea level can be activated.
GMA references assign special references that can easy distinguish from other references.
All references of all mountains activity programs (i.e. SOTA, HuMPs Award) are valid for the scheme. There will be points awarded
per qualifying summit on the GMA account. On this website the QSOs can be uploaded and
compared with results from other HAM-radio operators.
GMC - Global Mountain Challenge
The activities of the GMA can be incorporated into the GMC. The points system is designed differently.
Good tactics and taking advantage of bonus points makes the GMC a radio play-ground. At the end of the
year the winner will be announced.
GMAC - Global Mountain Activity Contest (VHF)
Every first Tuesday of each month from 19.00 local time and every third Sunday of each month from 08.00 UTC things are really moving in the 2 Metre band.
Whether in voice or CW counts for the kilometres achieved and for the locator squares worked.
Rules 2017 and more information can be found here.
In the GMA-Triathlon you can score points in different outdoor activities like operating from islands, lighthouses, Flora&Fauna areas (WWFF), summits and castles.
S2S Weekend Activity
S2S = Summit to Summit. Each quarter of the year activity days will take place. This means: Double points per activation and double points for each QSO for chasers.
A wide variety of attractive awards could be worked. Both as activators as well from the home radio station. The awards are all free and can be downloaded directly as a PDF file and then printed or saved.
DL0GMA is the clubcall of IG GMA and member of DARC DOK X17, Gotha, in Thuringia.
The Call is used for outdoor activities. If you are operating from Germany and would like to use this callsign, then contact please the responsible.
