Good job Clint and to add a few more...
K2ZRO Memorial Station Engineering Award that was very popular on AO-13
in both v/u and v/s modes.
Then if you are so inclined, there are a host of awards issued by the ARRL
VHF/UHF Century Club (VUCC)
Worked All States on Satellite
Worked All Continents (issued by the ARRL for the IARU)
DXCC on Satellite
Central States VHF Society has one for Satellites
VUCC/r (reverse VUCC... work from 100 different grids)
CQ Magazine has some awards for satellite
Then there are a bunch from foreign countries. So if you are in need of
wallpaper, have time to gather all the goodies needed, you too can be a
proud recipient of another award. You can then truly state that you did
that and have the t-shirt (I mean certificate).
