The European Capital Cities PSK Award Series (ECC) was devised by the European PSK Club (EPC) on 30th March 2009. This was to sponsor a series of PSK awards for contacts with amateur radio stations from various Capital Cities of the Sovereign States located in Europe. A sovereign state is a political association with effective internal and external sovereignty over a geographic area and population which is not dependent on, or subject to any other power or state. The 44 capital cities of Europe are listed below under the official English names.
