   in digital modes, except of Packet Radio. This does however not apply to the Supertrophy.

Backdated to 01.01.2009 all contacts of MF members working from home, from an europeen country or as well as from overseas counts can be assessed many times separataly with appropriate score.

All regulations apply for SWLs as well. Confirmed SWL reports are equal to QSOs.

The verified points for the MF plaque class 3 (50 points) are counting for class 2 (100 points) as well. Likewise it is handled for applying class 1 (150 points) as well as for the Trophies.

When applying for an award of higher grades, a contact shall not be enlisted which was already scored in a previous application, except it was made in a different mode.


Sticker for MF Trophy and MF Supertrophy

The steadily increasing number of MF members and the growing interest in our naval net at home and abroad gave evidence, that many HAMs were able to work more points than required for the Trophy and Supertrophy.
Therefore MF-RUNDE decided crediting those HAMs for their activities. Stickers were spon-sored for raising the Trophy and Supertrophy up to 300, 350, 400, 450 and 500 points and more.
The stickers are fixed on a wooden plate.

New award holders are being noticed in the weekly MF bulletins and in "MF QTC".
