The diploma «World Wide Grid Square Locators AWARD» was established by the RDRC club and is issued to applicants on the AWARDS CENTER OF RDRC website for radio communications with amateur radio stations located in various locators of large squares of the world grid. The diploma is awarded for large squares of the Maidenhead grid consisting of 2 letters and 2 digits, such as LN05, KO95, etc. The applicant receives a diploma with the possibility of repeatedly adding the number of locators to the sticker for each online log check on the diploma site. A basic diploma can be obtained for 100 different locators. Radio communications on any HF and VHF bands and any modes of modulation are counted. The diploma is issued to SWL operators. All radio communications (observations) are counted starting from the date of the applicant's first QSO.

USEFUL TIPS for creating a log in ADI format:
- some logs form adi in accordance with the fields (columns) that are displayed in the hardware log;
- before creating an adi file, we recommend setting up the display of the hardware log by removing some data (for example, QTH, NAME and others) and leaving only the data necessary for the diploma application - thus, when forming an adif, the file weight will become significantly less;
• select "World Wide Grid Square Locators AWARD" from the drop-down list, fill in all the fields of the download form without errors (please note: as you specify the first and last name, they will be displayed on the diploma), use the "REVIEW" button to find the necessary ADI file and "SEND" your journal for processing; if you misspelled your FIRST and LAST NAME and saw it on the diplomas you received, then contact the manager and ask him to correct your typos, email the manager of our diplomas awards(at)
