The requirements to obtain the IARU-R2 Award were recently updated at the last Executive Committee meeting held in Panama City, Panama in October 2018, so that they are more in tune with the times and with technology and also to facilitate the application procedure; besides, the award is sent now via Internet in a digital file to be printed by the applicant.

We encourage radio amateurs to visit the IARU-R2 web page (https://www.iaru-r2.org/new-iaru-r2-award/) to take a look at the requirements and verify if those requirements are already met or to get the QSOs required to get this beautiful and colorful diploma. We also encourage IARU member societies to promote the Award among colleagues.
