The World Heritage PSK Award (WHPA) is dedicated to the 10th Anniversary of the European PSK Club. It has been sponsored by Radioarena UK Ltd and devised by the European PSK Club on 1st May, 2016 for two-way PSK contacts with amateur radio stations working from various World Heritage Sites. Contacted expeditions (stations) don't need to be members of the European PSK Club. Contacts with a certain World Heritage Site are valid starting from the date of its designation as per the World Heritage List.
