BARTG PSK31 Award
As part of its 40th anniversary celebrations, BARTG announced the BARTG PSK31 Award.
Then Chairman Arthur Bard, G1XKZ, said, "In our 40th anniversary year it is extremely pleasing to launch an award which looks to the future of ham radio data comms. Promoting new forms of ham radio data comms was the reason why BARTG was first formed and I am sure that BARTG's founders will be pleased to see that, forty years on, BARTG is still at the forefront of ham radio data comms."
"As far as we know this BARTG award is the first ever award, worldwide, for the newest data comms mode in ham radio - PSK31. This mode, developed by Peter Martinez, G3PLX, really is growing in popularity day by day as more and more countries are to be found on the mode."
