New 5 Star Geratol Award

The GERATOL Net Board approved the new GERATOL  Net 5 Star Award at the last Board meeting 10/30/2018. There are many Old Timers that are close to achieving this award and it is our hope that it will spur them on to get on the Net. It also provides the ultimate challenge to all Members to keep them coming back to the Net. The rules for this award are below.

The Five Star Award

Exchange GERATOL numbers with 2500 stations.
1. A GERATOL number is required before working this award.
2. Any call sign format qualifies in the U.S. or Canada
3. All contacts must be after 01:00 November 1, 1972.

NOTE: The contact date on this award is changed in order to provide for Old Timers contacts that have been on and supported the GERATOL  Net since it’s inception. However, the award is open to any member that holds a GERATOL number.
This award is effective on Oct. 31 at 01:00 2018.

Example of this new award:

New Rules for Awards & Endorsements

Effective 10/30/2017 at approximately 01:20 UTC there were two changes to rules approved by the Board pertaining to 1. EQSL submissions and 2. log submissions using Log Book of the World.

  1. EQSL’s Effective as of the date shown above all EQSL’s must have the frequency marked to four digits in the comments field. No longer can the EQSL show/state that the contact was made on the Geratol Net ONLY. The statement in the NCS Preamble stating “the contact was made on the Geratol Net” will be deleted from the preamble.
  2. At the  suggestion of Jeff WE0A and as Awards Manager I made a motion to allow logs from Log Book of the World to be submitted for Awards and Endorsements. This change DOES NOT apply to the Basic WAS award only other awards and endorsements.  QSL cards and the standard application must still be submitted for the Basic Award. The Board approved both of these changes unanimously.

If you have any questions about these changes please either ask me on the air,  send me an Email or call me on the phone at 231-864-2354.
