The EI100T QSL cards have arrived and look fantastic. The EI100T logs have been uploaded to LoTW. This weekend EI4HQ and his family are hard at work processing the direct QSL requests (there are 192 of them to date); it is a rather large pile we have to get through so please bear with us. We hope to putting EI100T direct QSLs in the post by next weekend.

EI100T Award Update I: 28th April 2012:
The Titanic Award is available to radio amateurs who workEI100T on at least two bands or modes during 2012. Issued awards will be marked with a special endorsement if you worked EI100Tduring the weekend of April 14th & 15th 2012. To request the award, please send an email to email@example.com giving your callsign and postal address. No fees are required.
We have had many stations in touch with us about the award. To confirm, as long as you work EI100T on at least two bands or modes during 2012 you will receive an award. Unfortunately propagation conditions during the Commemoration Weekend were very poor across the Atlantic and this has lead to requests for a relaxation of the endorsement requirement;following discussion it has been decided to leave the requirements for the endorsement unchanged i.e. to qualify for the endorsement, you must have contacted EI100T between 0000 on April 14th and 2359 on April 15th 2012.
Below is the original EI100T notification as posted on QRZ.com. I'm leaving it here as a record. Some of the listed stations unfortunately didn't make it on air for the commemoration weekend but perhaps we'll see them before 2012 is out.
RMS Titanic, the worlds largest passenger ship at the time, sank on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, following a collision with an iceberg at approximately 0245 on the morning of April 15th 1912. 1,517 people lost their lives in the tragedy. The Titanic's final port of call was Queenstown (Cobh) on the south coast of Ireland on April 11th 1912 from where she weighed anchor on her fateful voyage.
The 100th anniversary of the sinking will be marked by several special commerative event stations at ports associated with the ships maiden voyage. These include Cobh, formerly Queenstown (EI100T), EI4CDN (Connemara), Belfast (GI100MGY), Southampton (GB1HMGY), Lichfield (GB0TI), Cape Race (VO1MCE) and a maritime mobile station (VE0MGY), at the site of the sinking.
Throughout 2012 EI100T will be operated regularly from Cobh ("Queenstown"), Lower Cork Harbour (IO51UU). Cork Harbour was the last port of call of the Titanic on her maiden and final voyage.http://ei4hq.cloudaccess.net/ei100t-titanic.html
During the weekend of April 14th & 15th 2012, a special event station signing EI100T will be operated from Cobh town to coincide with the Titanic commerations (see www.titanic100.ie& www.corkharbour.ie).
