UK Ham wins Cass Award

Rob Chipperfield, M0VFC, has won the 2012 Single-Operator Cass Award. The Cass Award is an incentive to encourage DXpedition operating excellence.

From the remote South Atlantic island of Tristan Da Cunha as ZD9UW in October 2012, Rob worked 3362 unique stations over his 4-day DXPedition, demonstrating an outstanding effort to log as many individuals as possible.

Michael, G7VJR, presented Rob with his plaque and prize in Cambridge, England on 7 March 2013.


Presented annually, the Cass Award encourages DXPeditions to maximize the number of DXers worked with a $1000 prize for the Single-Operator DXpedition that works the most unique callsigns.

This award honors the wisdom and spirit of Cass WA6AUD (SK), whose stories in the West Coast DX Bulletin taught a generation of DXers that DX IS!

Congratulations to Rob, ZD9UW, on his achievement in winning this year's award.
