Triple Play Award Received

Finally the hard copy of the Triple Play Award was received from the ARRL.  It is a nice certificate depicting a baseball diamond.  The award number issued was 710.  The certificate is already framed and hanging on the wall.

ARRL Triple Play Award

Category: Uncategorized • Comments: 0

Last Wednesday, 14 March 2012, I completed the ARRL Triple Play Award.  To earn this award, one must work all 50 states on Phone, CW, and Digital modes.  I had all states worked on JT65 last year, completed working all states on Phone last Saturday, and CW on Tuesday.  All contacts must be confirmed by Logbook of the World (LotW).  Not being a CW operator, the CW portion was a real challenge and forced me to step outside my comfort zone.  Anyway, it was fun trying to make the 150 contacts needed for this award.

What am I going to use this blog for?  I haven’t the foggiest idea.  I would like to promote my wonderful family, talk some about what I am currently doing in Amateur Radio over the internet, discuss my interest in logic puzzles, and whatever else just might come to mind.

Having never written a blog, this is all new.
