All I am is asking is a clarification on how the credits are arrived
at. I do not find a clear and cogent explanation posted on the ARRL
web site. If you can point me as to where the credit scheme is
described it would be appreciated. As far as the plaque/certificate
issue it makes no difference to me. However, I do have the plaque.
That being said it might be nice to offer both. I do think the
plaque and the $10. endorsement medallions are a bit much, but a
money maker for the ARRL.
It was interesting to find out that band credits were not typically
available for DX contacts made prior to LOTW and that a re
submission was required and a duplicate fee. That I am not sure is
proper. But I can live with it as the cost of playing in the game.
Is there a time limit on how long a discussion can take? It can go
on and on as long as it is civil.

Good afternoon all. I rarely post
to this list but I read and enjoy the posts. I have
participated in the Challenge since its inception. I just
reviewed the rules on arrl.org and found them to be clear and
succinct. Including the part about no certificate being
available. That discussion has gone on for approximately two
May I ask,
Neil, what you and your colleagues find wanting in the posted
Thanks Ria, I would suggest that a CLEAR explanation of the
Challenge award be written and published. A few friends have the
same issue that I did. I finally hit the 1500 mark last week and
that may be it. I doubt I will hit the 2000 mark. I have 347
country/entity confirmations in LOTW and 8 bands. so what I am
now chasing is band or mode contacts. Still fun. Again thanks
for the reply. Also I agree with others the plaque is ugly.
However, I do have one. The certificate is much nicer for the
other awards. I have the old and new WAS certificate a nice job
was done with the new one.
88 es tnx Neil N4FN and like you I chase 'em on CW,
Digital and some Phone. Oh another thought on LOTW why does the
column head for Digital still read RT for RTTY. It should have
been changed a long time ago. Again my two centavos.
