Castles & Fortresses Awards

Bedides the WCA (World Castle Award) programme, several countries are offering national and/or regional certifictaes for working castles. These sites are mostly activated by HAMs working portable from outdoors. Due to the enourmous multitude of the amount of castles, I am only moderately chasing them with the exception of those in my own country.

Italy

DCI =Diploma dei Castelli d'Italia. This award program generates lots of activity, especially on 40 & 20m SSB. Please have a look at the DCI webpage by clicking here. I more or less halted the chase after obtaining Honor Roll (at least 1000 castles in all italian provinces) worked.
