Single-Op DXpedition Award, I2UIY Memorial

Paolo I2UIY DXpedition Niger 2002

This plaque is sponsored annually by CQ WW Advisory Committee for the CQWW RTTY Contest in memory of Paolo Cortese, I2UIY. The recipient will be chosen by the CQ RTTY Contest Committee from among all single-operator entries from DXpeditions in that year's contest. Final score is only one aspect considered in determining the recipient. Difficulty of the endeavor, rarity of location, contribution to the local environment, etc. are all factors that are important in determining the winner. Paolo himself made many contest DXpeditions, setting records and regaling his hosts with his jovial, effervescent personality.
