K2ZRO Technical Achievement Award

The K2ZRO Memorial Station Engineering Award is an award for station excellence in receiving. Periodically during the year, W5ACM, Andy MacAllister will conduct this test. He transmits a series of 5 digits at becon strength in CW on AO-13. He will then reduce his power by 50% or 3db. He transmits another series of 5 digits. He will continue to reduce power by 50% until he is transmitting at 30db below beacon strength or level A. You attempt to copy the 5 digits to the level you can hear.
This award is no longer available as AO-13 has long since met its demise.
