The ODESSA Award Series was devised by the Odessa Section (Ukraine) of the European PSK Club on 18th April 2009. This was to sponsor a series of awards for PSK contacts with amateur radio stations from the Region of Odessa (EU Area UR06), Ukraine.
ODESSA-100, ODESSA-200, and ODESSA-300 Awards may be claimed by any licensed radio amateur, club station or DMS/SWL eligible under the EPC Awards General Rules who can produce evidence in a form of ADIF log of having contacted/monitored different amateur radio stations from the Region of Odessa, and earned 100, 200, and 300 points respectively at the time of application by using any PSK mode. Each contact with EPC member from the Region of Odessa is worth 10 points. Each contact with non-EPC member from the Region of Odessa is worth 1 point. Each station counts only once. Contacts with EPC members are valid on or after 10th June 2006, with non-EPC members - on or after 1st January 2000.
