|8/25/16 I'm back from a 2-week trip to Northern Europe cruising on the MS Corinthin, a very small cruise ship where we visited Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Russia (St. Petersburg), Estonia, Latvia, Poland plus Visby Island (Sweden). For a sort of inland sea, the Baltic Sea provided it's share of violent bouncing around most evenings as we proceeded to the next country/island. (Trip by Grand Circle Tours, Boston, Mass.) For the past week, I've been trying to catch up on the new awards which is only partly done. New awards continue regardless of vacations! Ted K1BV|
Annual Period Awards -
earn these awards for contacts during 2015/2016:

I still need your help to let me know about changed rules and award fees, new awards,
sponsors who don't reply to your applications, dead URL's,
1. I'm also the custodian of the USA-County Award sponsored by CQ Magazine and write the monthly Awards Column in that magazine. The first column appeared in the January 1998 edition. I will need rules and samples of awards on a pretty regular basis. If your club or group sponsors awards, or you can send me good quality photocopies of awards that you have received, I need good quality samples or copies for this column. This is an excellent chance to gain world wide publicity for your group. Send material to: Ted Melinosky K1BV, 12 Wells Woods Road, Columbia, CT. 06237 USA2. Foreign Postage - Bill Plum offers a wide variety of mint foreign postage and DXer supplies at competitive rates. Highly recommended.
3. Join the Ham Awards Reflector. ON4CAS has established a special e-mail delivered Reflector for all of us interested in the latest news regarding Awards hunting.
