Re: Ultralight Radio Awards Program
Thanks to all who have posted comments concerning the Ultralight Radio Awards program. Rob Ross and I have already done some preparatory work to maintain John's artwork in future Award Certificates, and partly as a tribute to John, we do plan to maintain the diverse award categories available under the current incentive system.
Our program is based upon using the artwork in existing certificates, so many of the Award Certificates sent to Rob and me have already been processed for use in new DXers' applications. Allen Willie and Kirk Allen have also kindly sent samples of the new "Centurion" Awards. What we currently lack are samples of the "basic" Award Certificates (100 stations heard, 20 states heard, etc.), so if you have received any Award Certificate from John recently that you think may be in this category, please consider sending the certificate (in file form) directly to me at d1028gary@... .
Certain certificates like the "Centurian" awards will require some additional time to process for further usage (using the Adobe Photoshop software), but the following awards sent to John and me have already been successfully processed for new applications:
1) 10 Countries Heard
2) 30 Latin American Stations Heard
3) 25 Countries Heard
4) 30 States Heard
5) 60 Graveyard Stations Heard
6) 6 Canadian Provinces Heard
7) 4 Continents Heard
8) Master DXer- 500 Stations Heard
9) Master DXer- 6 Canadian Provinces Heard
10) Master DXer- 40 US States Heard
11) Trans-Atlantic DXer (1 TA Heard)
12) Trans-Pacific DXer (1 TP Heard)
If any of you have interest to apply for one of these 12 Award Certificates (with John's original artwork), please submit your applications to Rob Ross, and they will be processed as time allows. Sample certificates in other Award categories will be greatly appreciated, and will be used to continue the original Ultralight Awards program (retaining John's creative artwork).
73 and Good DX,
