These are presented to hunters who successfully work the same references 10, 20, 30, 40 , 50, 60, 70 ,80, 90 and 100 times. Hunters must keep track of how many times you’ve worked the reference yourself, by using your awards statistics page, then make your claim via email at letting us know your callsign, the reference number you are claiming for and how many times you’ve worked the reference in multiples of 10.
