Congratulations to the following 18 stations who achieved QNI Awards for December:

Silver: VK2CCW, VK3CAB, ZL1NZ
Gold: VK2MZ, VK4QC, VK5EEE, VK6RR, VK7MA
Currently this is based on 2 points for checking into a qualifying net (currently 0830Z 7051.2 Net), and 1 point at any time on 14349, during the calendar month for Bronze, at least 10 points for Silver, and at least 30 points for Gold.
Please ensure I receive QNI information for nets in which I was absent. You can do this via QTC (to increase your sent QTC total) to me or via VK2MZ, VK4QC, VK6RR, or via Email.
All the above stations also qualify for CWB Communicator Certification (CCC) if additionally having sent at least 5 QTC within the past 6 months, and received at least 5 QTC within the past 3 months.
Other than those already qualified as CCC, namely VK2MZ, VK4QC, VK6RR, if any others have done so, please let me know so you can be listed as a Certified Communicator for CWB message handling.
Hopefully these awards will help to show our appreciation to the above many stations for their public spirited participation and training, furthering the cause of CW and emergency communications preparedness.
