This week, the Committee has processed quite a few more awards. Jeff
Curtis and Randy Brown both completed work on 25 States Heard in
Barefoot Class! If you have not tried that hurdle yet, you ought
to... by 25, each new state has become that much tougher.
to both of the fine DXers.
The rest of the awards were the beginnings of a large group, I hope, of
DX Centurian Awards. Kirk Allen and Richard Allen each qualified for
the DX Centurian: Latin America and DX Centurian: Mexico awards...
Richard was in the Barefoot Class and Kirk was DXing with Unlimited
equipment. Excellent, long term work by both of these guys!
Gary Deacon checked in from South Africa and went home with two
DX Centurian awards.... for Oceania as a whole and for his 104 Aussies
one season... surely that is a record that will not soon be
Frank Welch also has made it into the DX Centurian ranks with DX
Centurian: New York now among his awards... in the Barefoot class
Allen Willie (with 70 Countries plus, Barefoot) checked in, sending Rob
logbook of more than 100 MW stations in Europe DX Centurian:
Europe is already in St. John's!
I managed to get Rob's approval for my own logging of over 100 MW
stations from Texas just today (Monday) and also for Asia from
state, so I hold a DX Centurian: Texas and DX Centurian: Asia,
thankfully. However, I'm a looooong way from that DX Centurian: Oceania
of Gary's. Something to shoot for... but it will be several years, I
fear. And it may be NEVER before I get close to his 104 Aussies in one
season or in several!
Well, that was quite a haul and a most welcome one by the Committee....
let's see if we can blur ol' Rob's vision this next week....
for The Awards
