Challenge certificate


Kermit Lehman
 

Hi,


Is there an update on the availability of the Challenge certificate? 


I roll my own certificates when needed. I put a Digital sticker on my 5BDXCC (combination of RTTY and FT8) and presto! I had a digital one. 


I could make a  Challenge certificate of my own (copy the low-res picture of the Challenge plaque from the ARRL website, sharpen it up with a photo editor, fill it in), but I'd rather have an official one.

Last year sometime I was told that “it’s in graphics”.  Since then, just crickets.

Are there any HQ or “elected official” lurkers who could update us?

It was my understanding that the ARRL awards personnel set this site up and monitor it, so we don't have to worry about who to contact.


But I might be mistaken. Been there, done that.

"ARRL’s Committee on Communication with ARRL Members has opened new online forums where all radio amateurs — ARRL members and non-members alike — can discuss issues and topics in two-way conversation with ARRL leadership. The new groups are aimed at enhancing communication among ARRL leadership, staff, members, and prospective members, in a manner that enables timely updates and collegial discussion.

This project was based on the success over the past several years of the ARRL-LoTW (Logbook of The World) Group in responding to Amateur Radio operators’ questions and generating discussion on ways to improve that program. “The LoTW initiative has clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of online Groups as a means of achieving the desired interaction,” ARRL said in announcing the new groups."

Thanks for posting…here’s the phrase that should mean that ARRL staff monitor and participate in each of these Forums:

+ My take:

1. ARRL staff members like Bart W9JJ and committee members like Steve N4JQQ who were inclined to engage with members and prospective members are using these online Forums to do so; staff and committee members who weren't so inclined, don't.

2. Only two or three Board members have ever engaged in these Forums.

3. Bob W5OV, the ARRL's Director of Operations, recently announced on the ARRL-LoTW Forum that protracted criticism of the ARRL is forbidden. This is antithetical to the rationale for creating these online groups.

Greetings.
I ask myself what “protracted criticism” really means, and why would it be censored. Having done considerable public speaking to large groups (audiences exceeding 100) in the past, I have found that command of the English language is not always my forte. Therefore, looking it up seemed the appropriate thing to do to fully understand what the term implied. Also, to determine why it would be "antithetical" to the group.
Protracted was found to mean “lasting or drawn out for a long period of time”. Fully knowing what criticism means, putting the two together means repetitious lamenting over and over of someone or something that the writer believes to be wrong.
Noticing that this has been done in several of these forums makes one understand why that would be unwelcome throughout the forums. We are not five-year-olds, but rather adults who after a couple of repeats, understand the issue. Continued repetition of the same criticisms gets old, rarely solves the problem, and to some gives a negative impression of the writer(s). Surely it dulls the reception of the person(s) it is directed to and makes them less likely to respond or act.
I must believe that when the rule was made, it was for the above reason. No doubt that what the rule-makers have in mind is rather than the continued repetition of the issue, they would welcome constructive criticism, and if possible, the inclusion of possible alternatives or solutions to try or test out. To do otherwise can lead others to the conclusion of a “Monday morning quarterback”.
Rulemaking processes are often fluid. Perhaps initial rules no longer fit and had to be rethought. Often rulemaking is not a democratic process whether we like it or not. Constructive criticism (rather than protracted) would still be within the playbook of the group's formation.
Just one person's opinion that I thought I would express, thoughts by others may be different and that’s ok too.

Dale K8TS

I basically slowed down my participation in these forums for two reasons.

1. Someone else posted that they don't respond because I always
respond first. So I slowed down to give others a chance to answer. I
am not on the PSC, and I frankly am good with my committee assignments
as they fit better with my skill sets.

2. I found that some discussions just spiraled into an endless back
and forth and then some will use it to take pot shots at the Board and
others. So I now for the most part just take the feedback I see on
these forums (as a lurker) and then discuss internally.

So there you go.

With regard to the issue at hand, Bart gave the answer which is that
it's in progress.

+ In the ARRL-LoTW Forum, the primary topic is LoTW. Feedback from LoTW users is precious. Any policy that causes a user to think twice before posting critique - like worrying that their comments might be considered "protracted criticism" -- will reduce the quantity and quality of criticism. This is the exact opposite of what the ARRL's "Committee on Communications with Members" (of which I was a member) set out to achieve when it augmented the ARRL-LOTW Forum - which successfully operated for years without the "no protracted criticism" rule - with Online Forums for other areas of interest -- like this one.

+ Note that incivility and personal attacks are explicitly forbidden in all ARRL Forums.

Ria (and any other League staff and volunteers lurking here),

 

The “membership” didn’t establish these email lists.  They were initiated by a Board action with the mission of providing more open two-way communications between “the League” (staff/volunteers/elected officials (such as yourself)) and the ham community in general. 

 

If “the League”-side folks are going to be “lurkers”, then this email list is a waste of electrons.  For those who want to be “League Bashers”, QRZ, Facebook, and numerous other channels provide ample opportunity to write jeremiads on that subject.

 

But for those of us who want to interact with the League  “insiders/movers-and-shakers”, these io.groups struck me as a genius development.

 

Using the issue at hand as an example, it had it’s roots here more than a year ago when I discovered that the DXCC Challenge had no “diploma” award, only a plaque.  There was a discussion here, I communicated with my Director on the matter, and last summer (some body) directed the development of paper “diploma”.   I was pleased to hear of that!   Knowing “things take time in Newington”, especially during COVID, etc., I expected some delay in implementation.

 

Earlier this year (late February, I think)  I posted a message here inquiring of the status of the diploma.  There was no “League” answer, not even someone saying “I’ll check on that for you.”  Crickets.

 

Fast forward a couple months more to this thread.

 

Last week Ken, AB1J made an inquiry, similar to mine, about the status of the award.  There was some discussion, but no League response.

 

Someone suggested that we should “call the League” – OK, well who at “the League” should I call, and oh by the way, isn’t that what this email group is all about?

 

Another person put forward Bart as someone who might know.  So I sent him a direct off-list email inquiring into the issue.  He promptly answered here on this list with news that it was in process.

 

Since Bart (and other “League” people) obviously are subscribers here, a prompt answer (back in February, or last week) of “It’s still in process, times are busy, but we’ll keep you in the loop.” would have served two purposes:

 

  1. It would have defused the impatience generated by no news since last summer..
  2. It would have given “us” a “warm fuzzy” that important people at the League were paying attention to our concerns.

 

On a personal note to Ria…..  your campaign to Directorship gave a lot of us out here a promise of fresh blood and a more open governance at ARRL.  “Open Governance” and “lurking” in the communications channels seem like non-congruent concepts.
