I agree that the older style plaques should be available for those that want one. As for the cost, I assume that HQ would just pass that along to the person requesting the award. So there would be no cost to the League. My 2 cents worth.

Subject: Re: [ARRL-Awards] Challenge Award
I prefer the more prestigious older looking awards over the new
Trendy designs of late. To each their own. Does anyone actually
do any marketing studies on what the members actually want before
changing awards and art work? Are there panels of people that are
asked for their opinions and given options? This is a pretty
common thing in marketing and our awards are marketing.

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.
