The recently created Work Greater Moncton and Area (WGMAA) Certificate has been awarded to several local amateurs. This new award has created a flurry of activity on the 2 metre band in the Moncton Area, especially on 146.520 simplex, which is great to see.
Receiving certificate No. 1 is Ross, VE9GCS. He is followed by Cam, VE9CAM and Mike, VE9MTV. Also receiving the award is Steve, VE9SF and JP, VE9BK. Congratulations to all recipients.
In discussions with Ross, he has indicated that he‘s trying to reach the 50 unique station level and is also working on a QRP endorsement. Marcel, VE9ML is also actively working on the QRP endorsement. We’ve also heard of many local amateurs who are close to qualifying for the award.
The detailed requirements for obtaining the certificate can be found here. There is also a log sheet that can be downloaded to assist in logging the 25 stations required for the award.
So let’s get active on 2 metre and earn an award at the same time!!!
