1. Centurion is achieved when a SKCC member makes contact and exchanges SKCC numbers and name with 100 different SKCC members.
2. Neither the SKCC club call (K9SKC) nor any special-event callsign (such as K3Y) will be accepted for credit for QSOs logged on or after Dec . 1, 2009. However, you may use the call sign of the actual station operator, provided that you have not already used that operator on the Centurion application.
3. Both parties in the QSO must be SKCC members at the time of the QSO.
4. Any call sign used to achieve the Centurion Award can only be used once for that purpose. That is, if you work AC2C as non-Centurion member and then AC2C becomes a Centurion, you can't work AC2C again just because he became a Centurion.
5. Contacts may be made on any available band at any time, including WARC Bands.
6. QSOs must be made using a straight key, side swipper (cootie), or bug. The SKCC Board of Directors can grant exceptions on a case-by-case basis to those with physical disabilities that prevent the use of such keys. To request an exemption, use the email-board link under the Club Contacts section of the navigation column at left.
7. An endorsement will be provided for working 100 different SKCC members on any single band.
8. The award administrator processes all applications electronically. Several programs on the SKCC's Files and Downloads page will prepare submissions automatically. Or, you can use the Centurion Award and Endorsements application. If for any reason you are unable to submit a computer-readable application form, please contact the award administrator before submitting your application.
