Nightmare Alpha-Numeric FISTS Award (NANFA) NEW

Start date for this award is January 1, 2003. All contacts claimed for this award must be made after the starting date. There is NO TIME LIMIT to complete this award.

1) Contacts must be 2-way CW on-air contacts made on and after Jan 1, 2003.
2) Contacts can be made at any time, any place at any speed.
3) Contacts must be with a person or club with a FISTS number.
4) Contacts can be with FISTS from any country.

The object is to work stations whose call signs fit into the squares on a grid. There are 260 squares (26 letters and 10 numerals) 'Counters' are the last numeral of the call sign and the first letter of the suffix. For example, K7ZR goes in the 7 column at the Z row. WZ8C fits in the 8 column on the C row. P31ABC would be in the 1 column on the A row. By convention, use the numeral of a portable designator if there is one - WB9CIS /M3 would be in the 3 column on the C row. Also put the date (month/day) in the square with the call sign for reference.

You can make your own grid sheet by taking a piece of 8.5" x 11" lined writing paper and drawing 10 each 3/4" vertical columns labeling them "1" through "0". Then go to the left-hand margin and label 26 of the horizontal stripes "A" through "Z".

To get your NANFA certificate, send your completed grid (filled in with the call signs and dates) along with your log containing the same contact info used for the Basic Century Award. If you work the award using QRP or Mobile state so on your award application. Your award certificate will then be printed with "Your Call - QRP" or "Your Call - Mobile".
