This activity/event takes place every year. It started on May 5th, 1940,
where Chinese amateur radio operators started an “On air conference”. On
May 5th, 1947, the conference covered all the regions in China, it was the
biggest on air event. In 1942 and 1944, there were 2 exhibitions associated
with the “On air conference”. In recent years, the CRAC organized several
events on May 5th every year and designated that day as a Chinese amateur
radio festival, called “5.5 Festival”. Due to COVID-19, the CRAC called
for all amateur radio operators “Stay Home” to fight for the Conoravirus
situation. The 2020 “5.5 Festival” was shifted to the air waves.
The CRAC provides special awards to whose who meet the criteria below.
Award application can be sent to (cq55@crac.org.cn); indicate your call-
sign, award category and E-mail address to receive the award. The award
application deadline is September 30th, 2020.
Award Rules: The award has three categories Bronze, Silver and Golden,
which will be measured by slots worked. One slots is a combination of a
special callsign, band and mode. For example, worked B1CRA in 20m, SSB,
model is 1 slot.

For non-BY Applicants (XX9, BV, VR2 applicants applied in this category):
Bronze Award: 8 slots
Silver Award: 15 slots
Golden Award: 30 slots — Must consist of all 10 special callsigns
BORED WITH “STAY AT HOME” ORDERS? Although we are missing DXpeditions,
there is a tremendous amount of activity on the bands as every country
in the world seems to have stay at home orders. With no expeditions,
some may be experiencing a lack of motivation to get on the air. We have
the answer! CQ’s annual DX Marathon!! Each year hams are invited to work
as many countries and CQ zones as possible. So far this year over 255
CQ countries have been active plus all 40 zones. That is a lot of DX
chasing to keep everyone busy! There are plenty of certificates and even
plaques for the top scores each year, but many hams simply compete against
themselves to improve their totals each year. This is a wonderful time
to participate in the DX Marathon and see how many countries and zones
you can work this year!!! Complete details on the DX Marathon are available
on the DX Marathon website – www.dxmarathon.com .
Come and join the fun! 73, John K9EL
