The award is annual each year with slight variations for contrast. It will be issued on July 31st, and mailed out to the recipients. The image above shows only the certificate not including the plaque. I wish I could give everyone this plaque, it is well deserved. It serves as an incentive. I know we will make Paul proud. Believe me, it will be something that you folks will have no reservation placing on your shack wall. This award is for individual and club efforts only.

Paul was a God fearing man, Patriotic, a serious ham radio enthusiast and a joy to know/talk to. This is the least we can do. His last effort was working the 2011 event to its completion.
