GUADELOUPE
THE MILLS OF GUADELOUPE DIPLOMA (DMG971)

The Mills Of Guadeloupe Diploma (DMG-971.) is intended to promote the heritage of the island of Guadeloupe. In the years 1820/1830, in Guadeloupe there were nearly 240 sugar mills on the island which were used to grind the cane to produce sugar. The award requires you to contact different sites which have operated within 100m of the old mills in Guadeloupe. Guadeloupe is considered to be a part of the French Postal System which assigns five digit codes to each city or town, and the codes beginning with "971" are used for Guadeloupe. Contacts on or after: January 1, 2013.

This award may be obtained by any amateur radio or SWL who have contacted and confirmed the required numbers of Moulins of the island of Guadeloupe and islets.
1. DIPLOMA DMG-971 (10) different codes to confirm 10 mills.
2. DIPLOMA DMG-971 (25) different codes to confirm 25 mills.
3. PLAQUE DMG-971 (from 100 mills TBC) DMG-971 Manager

A list of mills Guadeloupe is established with reference to promotion of DMG-971.  For mills without references, a number will be assigned to new activations from which at least 50 contacts for the site have been made to be "valid" with the requirement that the activity has occurred within 100m of the site.

PROOF:
1. Guadeloupe amateurs are exempt from the requirement to send QSLs to ACRA Radio Club.
2. It should be noted that the electronic QSL with reference to the mill, or EQSL QSL received by email are accepted.
3. GCR by an official of any national or local club is accepted.

REFERENCE:
Each mill is given a reference number in the form of: DMG971AABB where AA is the postal code and BB code (00-99) identifies the specific mill in their master list.
References are allocated by the AIDA club, and the DMG-971-Manager
Each station activating a mill of Guadeloupe can use the specific references.
No other reference number will be valid for this degree.
Since Guadeloupe is considered a part of France, their mills will count for any French award for contacting mills.
A small contribution to the diploma and the plaque will be required. Contact sponsor for details.
