Re: 366 Chasers / Other Endorsements
David and all Endorsement chasers.
I received reassurance from Executive Director, Jim, K5SP, that "the 366 award is for working every day of the year. It can span years, it can take some over 4 years if they miss leap year. So, we could say that for now, the 366 award is there for perpetuity, just like the WTW".
So, with the patience of all, we will work our way out of these difficulties. And we'll need your support to make it work. Be prepared to step up and volunteer to assist as you are able. Look for specific appeals to come.

While you have some spare time, upload your log to the Endorsement Checker and check your standings. You may be surprised at what you have accomplished.

366 - The chase for the 366 Award peaked on February 29. Per my rough count, 25 of our members grabbed Leap Day and are on their way to grab the Award for 366.
LONP - Progress for your LONP Award can be tough initially. Consider it a right-of-passage! The first hurdle is that 100 level. Only 431 of our members have accomplished that.
In the last 2 months, the following members working toward LONP 100 level have uploaded and we see good progress. Many of these uploads were from new members, just getting started. Or maybe long time members just now getting back into PSK-31.
At the top end, 3 of our members have achieved the LONP Honor Roll 1,000 level.
W3HF #25 Steve 1,601
NO8R #777 Delos 1,451
K8TOM #815 Tom 1,250
Closing in with a lot of enthusiasm is N9AVY, #454, Jerry with 987 QSO’s. There are 10 others who have 800 or more and are still clicking them off.
WTW - Keep an eye open for your Work The World (WTW) Award. It is not an easy thing to get. Here’s a good example. After today’s upload of 29,311 QSOs, one of our very active members and frequent Top Dawgs is now at 2,245 letters of the 2,246 needed. Lee, N5SLY, needs just one “i” to spell “Africa” and to put this one away.
