As propagation conditions have improved, we are showing some good gains in member Endorsements. Our regular contests and Endorsement Daze have helped also. Delays in the Endorsement Checker mean that I will be reporting UNOFFICIAL results pending official results.
LONP - To qualify for LONP, 100 QSOs with fellow members are required.
In addition to those officially announced in 2020, the following members have uploaded sufficient QSO’s to qualify (not yet officially approved):
And in close pursuit of the next major Honor Roll level at 500 QSOs are
And then there are the Super Achievers with more than 1,000 member QSOs:

365/366 – Needing only one date are:
360/366 – Needing from 2 to 5 dates:
24/7 – Due to a unique strategy formed by Alan, KA5VZG, several among us either achieved or made great progress toward the 24/7 Award. The 24/7 Award requires making a QSO for every hour slot on every day of the week, 168 slots total. Alan proposed a strategy with 2 hour blocks, over a 3 week period. With the enthusiastic support of Bob, KK6KMU, Bob, K4VBM and several others, 4 members qualified with all 168 slots: Alan, KA5VZG, Bob, K4VBN, Don, KC4OBB and David, KR4U. Getting within easier reach were Stan, W9SMR with 166 and Bob, KK6KMU with 160 slots. Those were bleary eyed but very rewarding middle of the night hours.
WTW – Work The World - One of our toughest Endorsements. It requires 2246 specific call sign suffix letters to spell out Country names around the world. Only 42 members have earned this challenging award. Only Lee, N5SLY completed in 2020. Two active members have completed US and are pending completion of AF for the entire WTW series.
Congratulations to all!
Many more Endorsements were earned, far too many to list. I apologize for any errors and if I missed your efforts.
Keep up the good work!
