SAC_SampleSponsoredPlaque-2014_SmallerPlaque sponsorship by individual hams or groups increases the number of well-performing contest entrants that can be awarded. In turn, this benefits all SAC entrants by increasing activity and competitive participation. You may sponsor any free plaque. Alternatively, you may propose your own plaque idea, provided that you will sponsor it.

The annual cost of sponsorship is 20 euros/plaque, payable via PayPal. We hope that you will sign up for sponsorship for an undetermined number of years, but a one-year sponsorship is likewise highly appreciated. The list of plaques and sponsorships will be respectively updated and re-confirmed annually. Please contact Kim OH6KZP oh6kzp[a]sral.fi if you want to take part in the SAC Sponsored Plaque Program.
