ANAFA – Antarctic AirFields Award

ANAFA is a diploma program designed to attract the interest of radio amateurs in establishing two-way radio communications and observations with radio stations operating from areas of airfield fields and adjacent territories with
wintering sites and bases within the small squares of the QTH-locator located in the mainland of Antarctica. The ANAFA program is built on the condition of conducting and confirming the QSO with the largest number of areas of Antarctic aerodromes.
There is a qualification (basic) diploma and plaque.


Antarctica polar aerodromes, both active and non-operational, are counted for the ANAFA diploma. Identifiers, as well as aerodrome names, can be broadcast and indicated on QSL cards. There are about 10 airfields in Antarctica. The list will be periodically adjusted, subject to the opening of new airfields.
Links for the implementation of the ANAFA diploma program are counted from 01.12.2016.
