Republic of China (Taiwan) celebrated its founding centenary on 2011. Part of the celebration was through amateur radio by a special call sign station BV100. BV100 was QRV from October 10, 2010 to December 31, 2011 on all Amateur bands and all modes. There is also an award program devised to encourage hams from different part of the world to join in this momentous event. Details of the award program can be found on this link.

My station was able to obtain the Dual Mode and Tri-Band awards. I would like to thank James BU2AT, BV100 Award Manager, and Yohn BV5DL for their assistance in processing my application and mailing the award certificates. 

For those who had made QSO's with BV100 and would like to join the award program, you can submit your application online until March 31, 2012 from this link.

Congratulations to BV100 for the successful celebration of Republic of China (Taiwan) Centennial through amateur radio.
