FISTS National Club Stations

FISTS operates a number of Headquarters club stations.  These are worth extra points for Activities and Awards.  Details of these are given below.

All Headquarters callsigns except JL3YMV have their own CC numbers too - during your contact with the station, ask the operator to send it to you.

Stations belonging to affiliated clubs are also worth extra points (3 points in Centrury and QRP Awards); members can use the Member Lists page to find out if a callsign belongs to an affiliated club station.

FISTS in Europe

  • GX0IPX (G0IPX) FISTS #1.  Callsign held by John M0CDL.
  • GX3ZQS (G3ZQS) FISTS #2, in memory of Geo Longden G3ZQS, founder of FISTS.  Callsign held by Rob M0BPT.
  • MX5IPX (M5IPX) FISTS #7778.  Callsign held by Graham G3ZOD.
Members in the UK and Crown Dependencies that hold an Advanced Licence can ask to operate using the above callsigns.

If you want to do this, please contact the licence holder by sending an email to whatever the callsign is followed by @fists.co.uk and tell them the dates/times that you wish to operate.  If they approve the operation, afterwards they will want a log of the QSOs emailed to them in an agreed format.
