Getting Your Certificate

1) Download and print out our Colony Log sheet (this is a fillable pdf ),on the Log Sheet Page. (Yours is OK too). Fill-in all applicable information. NOTE: this also applies to SWLs requesting a certificate.

2) A $5.00(US) donation** is requested (NOTE: this is an increase from previous years due to increased costs of materials- envelopes up 45% - and postage - we kept the previous cost as long as we could and hope that you understand and continue to participate), AND A RETURN SELF ADDRESSED LABEL for your certificate return envelope. This will cut down the time you get your certificate by two fold. Your address should be on the label!

3) Cash, check or MO is OK. Place my name on the check/MO this way: (pay to the order of) Ken Villone-Award Manager. (Banks are fussy!)

4) Send your return label, donation & log sheet to: Ken Villone-KU2US, PO.Box-185, Conesus NY. 14435-0185, USA.

5) We will provide the return envelope and postage. NO extra postage required for DX requests.
