The Loyal Order of the Narrow-Banded Phaseshifters (LONP)

Purpose - With membership in the Ø7Ø Club over 1,000 members strong, this award encourages members to work each other using PSK31. Contacts with non-members do not count for this award.

Valid QSO - A valid QSO is one made via PSK31 mode on the HF bands between two Ø7Ø Club members, both of whom meet the criteria for membership in the PODXS Ø7Ø Club at the time the QSO was made (see membership criteria below).

Bands - All HF bands are allowed, 16ØM thru 6M, including WARC bands. All contacts must be 2-way PSK31. No non-PSK31, repeater, cross-mode or cross-band contacts are allowed.

Membership Criteria - Membership in the PODXS Ø7Ø Club is determined by the date of issue of the Ø7Ø Club membership certificate. For this award, one's membership in the Ø7Ø Club shall be considered to begin at ØØØØZ on the date of issue as noted on his/her Ø7Ø Club membership certificate.

LONP List - The reference database for LONP is the current LONP List of members showing their membership dates and any callsign history. A copy of this reference is available on this web site. Updates to this reference list shall be made periodically to reflect changes in the Ø7Ø Club membership, including changes in members' callsigns. This list shall be the final and determining reference for this award.

Operator-based Award - This is an operator-based award program and as such, places no restrictions on the participants' respective geographic locations at the time any QSOs submitted for this award were made. QSOs made while portable or mobile in any way are all valid for LONP, provided that the QSOs were made under the member's call signs as listed in the Ø7Ø Club LONP List and all other conditions for the award are met.

Lifetime QSO points - A PSK31 QSO with another Ø7Ø Club member counts once for 1 Lifetime QSO point. Additional QSOs with the same member are not valid for application for the LONP Award or endorsements. Contacts with non-members do not count for this award.

Awards - The basic LONP Award, a certificate suitable for framing, is awarded for a total of 1ØØ Lifetime QSO points. Endorsement stickers for the basic LONP Award will be available at no charge in increments of 5Ø additional Lifetime QSO points.
