French COTA Challenge 2021
Organize an annual challenge for French Cotas and overseas with the possibility of obtaining France Cota Awards over time (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum).
The annual challenge
An annual challenge is organized by the France division and overseas resorts.
The aim is to promote radio activity by activating lighthouses (COTA).
The goal for "hunters" is to contact a maximum of castles each year and to obtain one or more AWARDS over time.
Each year a new participation diploma will be printed which you can obtain from the challenge managers.
The challenge managers are 14AT058 Philippe and 14AT171 Daniel under the cover of the France division.
An official log sheet is available and updated over time by the challenge managers. It will be downloadable on ATFR – www.alfatango-fr.org
Content of the Log
No progressive exchange.
The principle of "In The Log" or "Log" is used. To be considered valid, the QSO must mention the date, GMT time, frequency, mode and RS.
Date of the 2020 challenge
from 01/01/2021 to 31/12/2021.
Sending the "hunters" Log
They will be sent no later than January 31 of the following year.
For example, the log of the year 2021 will be sent at the latest on 01/31/2022.
The managers of the challenge will systematically send a confirmation of the good reception of your log (by email).
Each activator of Cota has the possibility of printing a QSL. In this case, the operator wishing to obtain the QSL card must send their QSL directly to the operator of the Cota and not to the challenge manager. (Mention of the availability of the QSL is made in the official log table).
Available from challenge managers. E-diploma (free), paper diploma: contribution of 3 €.

This is a simple classification which will be mentioned on the diploma and disseminated by the France division on the official ALFA TANGO websites.
