First radiogram award

Traffic handlers in the ARRL North Texas Section know that I am passionate about traffic handling. I am especially excited by new amateur radio operators that jump in and start handling traffic.

I would like to commemorate the moment when new traffic handlers author their first radiogram and relay it over the air (so FM/voice, or via DTN, or some other over-the-air activity, and not over something like EchoLink) by sending a special certificate. 

Because I am providing these certificates personally and at no cost, I am not able to take requests for stations outside of the North Texas Section. And, as much as I would like to provide certificates for everyone, please only send requests that fall within my time as Section Traffic Manager, meaning any date on or after April 23, 2019.

To request a certificate, please fill out the information below about your first radiogram, and I will work to get a certificate printed and sent to you as soon as possible. Your certificate will be mailed to the address on file for the Station of Origin, so make sure your address on file with the FCC is up to date.

I hope you will take pride in displaying your certificate in your amateur radio station and continue on your traffic handling journey for years to come.

Select your shipping method

I mail these using First Class mail, but if you prefer I use Priority Mail, I ask that you please make up my cost difference, which is $4.35 (I make no profit). Either way, I use a roughly 9 x 13 rigid envelope and further reinforce with chipboard to help protect your certificate.

I use PayPal to process payments for Priority Mail, but you do not need to have a PayPal account. Please know that I am not responsible if the USPS estimates delivery in 1 day but then takes 2 days (a.k.a. no refunds, regardless of the reason).

Certificates are generally prepared and mailed within 1 business day.

Select your preferred shipping method using the tabs above, and then complete the form.
