4L, GEORGIA. Operator Vaho, 4L8A, will be active during the CQWW DX CW Contests (November 26-27th) as a Single-Op/Single-Band (20m) entry. QSL via K1BV or LoTW.
Nov 28th: CQWW DX CW Contest - Conditions during the contest are a hint at the decreasing sun spot count. I made 503 contacts mostly by search and call versus just calling CQ. EU was missing mostly on the first day, and it wasn't much fun as in previous years. Got 7 new prefixes, which is always nice to see.
Annual Period Awards -
earn these awards for contacts during 2016:
Permanent Awards -Generally Not Time Limited.
Always check for a beginning date for contacts.
I still need your help to let me know about changed rules and award fees, new awards,
sponsors who don't reply to your applications, dead URL's,
1. I'm also the custodian of the USA-County Award sponsored by CQ Magazine and write the monthly Awards Column in that magazine. The first column appeared in the January 1998 edition. I will need rules and samples of awards on a pretty regular basis. If your club or group sponsors awards, or you can send me good quality photocopies of awards that you have received, I need good quality samples or copies for this column. This is an excellent chance to gain world wide publicity for your group. Send material to: Ted Melinosky K1BV, 12 Wells Woods Road, Columbia, CT. 06237 USA2. Foreign Postage - Bill Plum offers a wide variety of mint foreign postage and DXer supplies at competitive rates. Highly recommended.
3. Join the Ham Awards Reflector. ON4CAS has established a special e-mail delivered Reflector for all of us interested in the latest news regarding Awards hunting. This is a great chance to meet other awards hunters and get news about ham awards delivered to your in- box on a daily basis. Follow the link above to get all the information you need.
