Noviomagum certificate

How to get your Noviomagum certificate?

Since march 1978, the local Branche Nijmegen of the VERON (the Dutch recognised national society for amateur radio operators), issues the Noviomagum Certificate.

On the occasion of 70 years "1ØØ year Four Days Marches" the rules to obtain the Noviomagum certificate have been altered.

Due to the fact that this is a memorial year the Noviomagum cerficate has some additional rules. One QSO with special event station PA1ØØFDM counts for 3 QSO´s. Furthermore will each QSO, that has been confirmed with a QSL card of special event station PA1ØØFDM, be valid for 2 QSO´s.


The award is available to licensed amateurs and SWL´s.

You need either a total of 10 HF points or a total of 30 VHF/UHF/SHF points for an application for the Noviomagum award.

All QSL-cards valid for the award will show the text: "This QSL-card is valid for the Noviomagum award."

There are no limitations in date, band or mode.

You can apply for the award by sending an extract of your logbook to the Award Manager. This extract needs to be signed by two licensed HAM´s or a clubofficial.

The fee for the award is the postage fee for:

  • The Netherlands, which is EUR 5 in an envelope or EUR 7 in a tube.
  • EU within the EU Union EUR 5 or USD 7.
  • EU outside EU Union USD 7.

The Application Form download Button will be activated after we have received a Twitter message from you.
