What is a GCR list?
GCR stands for General Certification Rule. It provides a convenient way to apply for an award without the cost and risk associated with mailing QSL cards. Instead, the applicant need merely provide a list of contact information signed by two other Amateur Radio operators. Those signing the application testify that the QSL cards (or some other form of confirmation) for the contacts listed are in the possession of the award applicant.
Each of the contact/QSL entries supplied in a GCR application should contain all of the information one normally would gather from a physical QSL card. This at a minimum includes:
Date and time (in UTC of course)
Band or Frequency
Other Award Resources
Send GCR list and $2. Cdn or 5 IRCs to:
