My First VUCC 50 MHz Award Certificate Arrived

In yesterday’s mail, I received my first VUCC 50 MHz Award certificate. The award is for confirmed contacts with 100 stations in different Maidenhead grid squares. There are endorsements for every additional new 25 grid squares. When I applied for the award, I had 127 confirmed grids, so the endorsement sticker at the top left of the certificate is for reaching 125 confirmed grids.

Since applying for the award, I have confirmed 115 additional grids for a total of 242, so I need 8 more confirmed to reach 250. Once I get those, I’ll apply for 150, 175, 200, 225 and 250 endorsement stickers for the certificate.
