SPECIAL NOTICE - RUSSIA AND COUNTRIES OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF INDEPENDANT STATES

n January 1st 1992, and after a period of about 75 years, the USSR ceased to exist. The Commonwealth of Independant States (CIS) which is the successor state that replaced the USSR is a loose confederation of Russia, the Ukraine, Belarus and a few, but not all of the previous countries.

For several years, starting in the late 1980's, the effects of Glasnost and Perestroika helped to add several hundred awards to this book. Judging from the mail I receive, it's clear that our Russian friends have always enjoyed awards hunting.

Recent political upheaval is, unfortunately, taking a serious social and economic toll on the average ham/SWL as the move to a market based economy has disrupted many aspects of Russian life. 

One of the bad side effects of these historic events is a temporary (we hope) disruption of mail services. Not all mail that enters the country is delivered. Especially if it comes from overseas and looks as if it might contain valuables (currency / IRCs).

The Russians know it's happening. They've written warnings about this. They've complained to the postal officials openly.

What do we do about these interesting and colorful awards? Some tips, not necessarily in the order of precedence:

1. Write or use e-mail in advance. Ask if the award is still being offered and if the sponsor has made special arrangements with a friend in a "safer" country to receive the fees.
2. Get a supply of the European size letter envelope. Foreign non-standard envelopes are too prominent.
3. Don't use colorful stamps - this may attract the wrong kind of attention.
4. Use Registered Mail - yes, I know it's expensive.
5. Wrap IRCs or currency in carbon paper cut to the exact size of the letter.
6. Postpone applications until the situation improves.

I guess #6 is my last in order of preference. I continue to receive mail from award sources and correspondents in the CIS and they are thrilled at the recent events. They aren't giving in to a few dishonest mail pilferers. We shouldn't either.

Mail service from Russia has improved and I am regularly receiving award samples via mail.  Several well known QSL printing operations are also located in Russia, and shipments have been excellent.  You still might want to write in advance to the sponsor, asking not only if the award is still being issued, but also whether they have made arrangements with friends in countries with "safer" postal systems for sending monies/IRCs. A one sheet letter from you (carbon paper hiding an IRC) is suggested to prevent tampering. Also, many Russians have e-mail, and known addresses are shown in my Directory. Or you can use any of the online services to get an e-mail address.  Please write to me about your results. I will remove awards if you don't get a response.   At least internally, I note that Russians are issuing large numbers of great looking certificates, and I will continue to try to get data for you.  
Note for 2016: Most short term and some longer term awards are being issued as digital documents by the sponsor.  In general, these awards are FREE of charge, and only require you to send QSO data to the sponsor, who will send you a digital file which can be printed out in your ham-shack at NO cost.  This is a good trend, and we hope to see it expanded to long term awards since (1) postage costs are eliminated, (2) award printing costs are eliminated, and (3) response time is vastly reduced.  Some awards are received within 24 hours of application.

Some of the free awards are locally programmed, and others use the system of larger groups.  It always helps to look at the URL provided, and use Google Translation on the rules.  In general, you will be asked to submit QSO data for the required station (Call Sign, Date, Band, Mode, and RS/T.) and to submit your name and address (for properly writing the award).  You will be sent a digital file which most recent printers will be able to provide a good image of the award.  Remember to use quality paper for best efforts.
