Re: Disappointed in Triple Play "plaque"

ARRL has, in my opinion, watered down the Awards program.

Until the members rise up and speak out, the program will suffer.

 

…and the value of those awards will diminish.

Subject: [ARRL-Awards] Disappointed in Triple Play "plaque"

 

I know that ARRL folks read this forum so I wanted to express my extreme disappointment in the "plaque" I purchased for my recent Triple Play award.  It is advertised on ARRL.org as "laminated", but it's simply attached to the back with a plastic hook glued to it.

I was going to obtain a REAL wood plaque base ($14 on etsy.com) to mount it on, but first the plastic hook on the back would need to go.  Guess what?  The hook is GLUED DIRECTLY TO THE CERTIFICATE, not plexiglas, so removing it destroys the award.

Fortunately I saw what was happening before the hook was completely removed, but I still have a nice large scar on the certificate. 

You got me this time, ARRL, but it won't happen again.
