I recently achieved my 360 of 366. It was most likely after the endorsement count. I need only Feb 15, June 3, 25,26 and Aug 23 to complete the 366. Loo for me and I'll be looking for you.

Congrats - PODXS 070 Endorsements – January 2021
As propagation conditions have improved, we are showing some good gains in member Endorsements. Our regular contests have helped also.
With the endorsement software not working properly, a lot of manual intervention has been required. Our Executive Director, Jim, K5SP, has been manually updating the LONP data based upon the log submissions to the endorsement checker. It is a slow, tedious process, requiring him to copy the data from the checker, paste it into a text file, and then import that text into Excel. So far, this updating has shown the following new Official awards for LONP.
#2129 NN9K has earned LONP 150, 200, 250
#2526 KC3FL has earned LONP 350, 400, 450, 500 and will be placed on the 500 LONP Honor Roll with 518.
LONP - To qualify for LONP, 100 QSOs with fellow members are required.
In 2020, 15 members were officially recognized:
In addition to those officially announced in 2020, the following members have uploaded sufficient QSO’s to qualify (not yet officially approved):
We also have an excited pack of LONP Seekers in hot pursuit of this traditional first rights award. If you see them, give them a call and spot them on PSKReporter and our reflector:
And in close pursuit of the next major Honor Roll level at 500 QSOs (but not yet approved) are:
366 – The 366 Award requires a QSO on each of the calendar days of the year, a large
B-I-C commitment. Only 52 members have earned this. Accomplishing this during 2020 were:
365/366 – Needing only one date are:
360/366 – Needing from 2 to 5 dates:
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.
TRI-WARC - As Propagation continues to improve, the 070 Club offers the "TRI-WARC" pennant. Work three different stations on each of the WARC bands (30M, 17M and 12M). Follow that with the 12/12M, 17/17M and 30/30M awards.
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!
