I think it’s great. There are already too many awards for people sitting at their rig working every possible station they hear and too little for those doing the hard work. A lot of rare grids were activated last year and a large portion of these were promoted on social media. This has allowed for so many more people to catch a rover in places that may not be active again for years or even a lifetime. The act of roving is selfless and giving credit to those who go out of their way to help as many people as possible is long overdue. 

Now I just need to figure out where I’m going to go for my next /mm activation and make sure it’s worthy of writing a journal article.
