The Dutch PSK Award Series (NLPA) was devised by the European PSK Club on 28th March 2008. This was to sponsor a series of PSK awards based on the administrative geography of the Netherlands. Any Dutch award may be claimed by any licensed radio amateur, club station or SWL eligible under the EPC Awards General Rules who can produce evidence of having contacted/heard amateur radio stations in the Netherlands by using PSK modes. Credit will be given for contacts made on any of the amateur bands below 30 MHz. Contacts with EPC members count on or after 10th June 2006.
