GAPA'ians,

Thanks Alan for originating this holiday message!  

I heard that eham.net is eager for any NEWS Article and perhaps you could do some of your magic there.

Lots of rain after 12" of snow, but we're all fine here at the retirement community.

All the best to all in 2021 !!

All,

I hope everyone has a chance to enjoy the holiday season and that the New Year brings a safer world to all of us . Things are progressing with the awards program. Ernie WM2U has been busy developing new awards, the latest in progress will be for EU and AS Russia. A great effort from contributors Rich K3VAT and Hugo PA3GAE.

I have GAPA QSL style cards available that are great to enclose with your outgoing QSLs. Let me know if you want a few.

73 and Best Wishes for the season,

Alan WL7CG

Re: GAPA "QSL" Card

All,

I hope everyone is ready for the holiday season. GAPA continues to grow and much of it is because of our participants. I still have many GAPA "QSL" style cards. If you mail out QSLs, these would be a great addition for your envelope. Let me know if want any and I will mail them.

Thanks,

We got a nice blurb at ARRL for GAPA:

The Grid and Prefix Award Program (GAPA) has announced the establishment of a comprehensive Digital Awards Program. Awards are available for radio amateurs and shortwave listeners (SWLs) for confirmed grids and prefixes worked or heard using digital modes.

“This is not an award based on the station you are using, but rather the operating prowess of the operator,” explained Alan Sorum, WL7CG.

Contacts made under any call sign you may have used in the past are valid for confirmations; there is no start time, so all confirmed digital contacts are acceptable. The program accepts electronic confirmations. Certificate costs are minimal, typically far less than a dollar.

Visit the GAPA website or contact Alan Sorum, WL7CG, for more information.

The cards seem to work, I've gotten some feedback already with sending them along with QSL card requests.

Let me know if you want some of them to send out.

Hi to all!

I hope everyone is coping well within the boundaries imposed upon us by the COVID-19 pandemic. All is well here in SoCal!

I must be missing something here with regard to garnering these awards. What is required to confirm that the QSOs one applies for actually took place? Is GAPA on an honor system? Is LoTW confirmation required? I’m new to your system and would like to apply for a couple of the certificates. They are beautiful!

Looking forward to your clarification!

All,

I just got my order of GAPA "QSL" cards from UX5UO. Try turned out great. The idea is have some of these on hand and when mail out a QSL card, add one of these to the envelope.

If you are interested in helping us promote GAPA, send me an email with your mailing address and I will send some of the cards.

Thanks,
