CQ ENCE: Certificate of Participation
The National Exercise of Emergency Communications (ENCE), organized together by several radio amateurs' associations in Spain, now issues this certificate, available in different languages, to those participants who successfully passed the test.
The exercise consists of two parts: one by radio and the other in the web, filling a form with the received message.
This is a good way to practice and keep fit. Read conditions and download your certificate.
