Awards & Endorsement Info

There has been a problem with some of the applications concerning requirements for Awards and Endorsements. The data for requirements, especially allowable QSO periods for endorsements, is located under the ENDORSEMENT 1-10 heading, the ENDORSEMENT 11-20 heading, etc. but not shown under individual Endorsement sections. Kevin is adding those requirements to each endorsement on the site. In the mean time, if you have any questions, feel free to check with myself, or use the GNEC HELP file for clarity prior to your applications.

Bottom line is that if you are applying for or are in the process of working on Awards or Endorsements please send me an email stating what Awards or Endorsements you are going to apply for, working towards, or thinking about working towards and I will email you the official requirements for them. As soon as the Web Site is corrected I will let everyone know.

Good luck on any and all Awards and Endorsements and if I can help you with them let me know.
