ENGLAND ROBIN HOOD AWARD
The Robin Hood Award is a fun award for Radio Amateurs who make contact with other stations operating fixed or portable radio stations at locations associated with the legendary Robin Hood. It is also available to the activators who operate these radio stations. Places named after Robin Hood, WIll Scarlett, Friar Tuck, Maid Marian and Little John, are scattered around north Nottinghamshire, south Yorkshire and east Derbyshire and places farther away - even in other countries - that claim a connection to this mythical English Folk Hero.
Anyone can participate in the Robin Hood 'Fun' Award: it is available to
stations who operate at a location associated with Robin Hood, and anyone
who makes contact with them (including Short Wave Listeners). Note: there
are other rules/requirements for ACTIVATORS on their website.
At any point, even if just one contact, you may go to the website, submit your contact data and download a do-it-yourself Certificate.
The Robin Hood Award is totally self-regulated. That means that 'Activators' and 'Chasers' only need to follow some simple guidelines, and may download a d-i-y Award Certificate at any point. There are no points or scores to count and logs do not need to be submitted for validation. For more information go to the Award Downloads page.
If the Robin Hood Award proves to be popular, conventional 'Achievement Awards' will be introduced, whereby Activators and Chasers gain points towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.
What & Where Qualifies for the Award?
A radio station in close proximity (usually less than 0.5km) to any locations associated with Robin Hood and His Merrie Band, King John and Richard Lionheart, and which have a well known and commonly used place-name such as Robin Hood's Cave, or Friar Tuck's Well (see the Robin Hood Locations page). Places outside Robin Hood Country may also have a Robin Hood place-name: these may be in any county or country, not just Nottinghamshire or even England, so these too are valid locations for an award activation.

Here, Marconi’s researches involved studies using micro-wave antennas and radio systems (500 MHz frequency, today’s UHF band) now considered as the beginnings of modern radar technique, researches on high energy electromagnetic beams and also HF radiogoniometry applications. This important research center was built close to an ancient tower (Chiaruccia Tower) on top of which Marconi himself used to tune and test his radiating systems. The tower was destroyed during WW2; currently the area is occupied by an Air Force base for meteo service.
