Over 1,745 30MDG members and over 1900 Awards issued...growing pains
Just wanted to report that we are at 30MDG member 1745 so we are still
moving along with new members joining us on the 30m band and
30MDG..not sure when it will level out but please get on the 30m band
and have some fun and pass the word around about our small group to
promote 30m digital activity (or use your 30MDG in your brag file
along with our site address www.30meterdigital.org if on 30m or other
bands to promote the group).
Also thanks to John and the Ultimate30 (U30) Award program made it
easier than ever to participate in our casual Award program so for the
first time we have issued more Awards than we have members and we are
up to over 1,900 Awards issued! This is a hugh increase considering
that from Nov07 to Nov08 we had only issued 800 or so Awards and in
just 2 months or so we now have issued around 1,100 in addition to for
the total to date of over 1,900 Awards...thank you all for
participating and we see more and more increased activity on the 30m
band (and your logs!)....and a BIG THANK YOU to the Award Managers for
all the hard work and time they put into all this..our 30MDG Awards
Managers are ZL3RG Rob, NK2X Larry, M0IOW Barry, VE3OIJ Darin, GI7OMY
Daithi, OE3EPW Pez (me too kb9umt Don)..and U30 OE3JPK John and our
30m SPOT page VK3AMA Laurie & KE7HPV Sholto...THANK YOU.
We are having a few growing pains and between the Award managers being
very busy and some changes taking place on the 30m SPOT page and some
of Rob's zl3rg members/awards pages I hope you are patient with us for
the next few weeks until we get things in place and all caught
up....we have some new links to link up to and maybe pass around but
hope to have this all done soon.
I will be closing the Polls down that Sholto KE7HPV wanted ran to get
a better feel for the 'Last Sunday of the Month learn a different
digital mode' and I think Sholto might be ready in a month or two to
carry this activity on for 2009 for us...always fun stuff to try
something new or experiment.
I will start a few other polls and that will be it for a while just to
get a feel if you all will or want to participate in some 30mdg events
for 2009, maybe a set 30MDG weekend every month to promote members to
get on that weekend and/or maybe a 30mdg net or two etc...but I think
very soon we will have a 30MDG event weekend...okay?
Thanks to all that participate here
