In 58 years on the air it's inevitable that I'd garner a few awards. I'm not a big award chaser and for many of my years on-the-air didn't even collect QSLs. About 15 years ago I decided to go after some of the basic awards and sure was sorry I didn't go after those earlier QSL cards. Especially for some of the great DX I worked and still need!
My favorite is my ARRL Triple Play award number 226. Working all states on three modes (CW, RTTY, and SSB) in less than two months was a real challenge and an awful lot of fun.
I have the 5 Band DXCC award # 5181 with 160, 30, 17, and 12 meter endorsements and CQ's Worked All Zones award # 8094. In 2014 I made the DXCC Honor Roll and also received the 5B Worked All Zones (WAZ) award.
In 2017 I completed and received the ARRL's 5 Band Worked All States (WAS) plus 160 Meter award.
I worked hard on my VHF/UHF Century Club (VUCC) award. I My December 2018 stats were VUCC: 437, FFMA: 326. But - today - Zero, Zilch, Nada, None. I moved. Now in FM05 and I have to start all over again.
And now, a shameless plug for the American Radio Relay League's (ARRL) Logbook of the World (LoTW). It's a great way to confirm QSOs. If you're reading this you have a computer with internet capability - so get registered and upload your log. And if you're one of the DX entities or VUCC grids I still need - DO IT NOW!
