My deepest appreciation and thanks…

Today I received a box in the mail that I was not expecting. After I soaked it in water in case it was a bomb, I opened it and found a pleasant surprise from the net: The Phoenix Award.

Al Gritzmacher AE2T #1800 with Phoenix AwardThank you all that had a hand in this. It means a lot to me. I have worked towards many of the net awards and endorsements, but never seemed to get around to ever applying for them. I always enjoyed the actual on-air part more and I kept procrastinating. This one was a complete surprise.

I don’t remember when it was I started the web page for the net, but it began very simply as a project while I was learning HTML. I hoped my tinkering with it could turn into something useful to the net. Several hosts later and a couple of domain name changes (Remember it’s become a central point of communication for the net.

Since handing the reins over to Kevin N1KL, we’ve got the site running smoothly and added some features to make it even better. I know it will continue to serve the net well under his guidance, and I will assist when needed.

Thank you again. I will place this in a prominent place in my shack!
