AND, all of us that have received awards can send a list to whoever takes on this job, via private email. to reconstruct these lists of awards. also, anyone can find the last award listing from John and Yahoo makes a list of previous emails with the same titles. that should make the job easier.
keeping track of who achieves awards, on this website, is most important, to encourage others to go after new awards. just like radio mods, it certainly has spurred me on. i'm starting on a srf-59 mod with vernier drive, bigger battery, external audio amp and external ferrite rod w/litz wire.
800 stations, 40 states, 8 provinces. it shows whats possible and gives all of us, hope.
