QRZ.com offer a number of different awards. Each certificate costs around the @20.00 dollar mark for QRZ subscribers and $25.00 for non subscribers. A few weeks ago I applied for the DX World Award which is issued for successfully making contact with at least one hundred different countries.
This afternoon I received my latest Global Activator certificate for the World Wide Flora Fauna (WWFF) program. It was issued for activating 121 different WWFF reference areas.
Many thanks to Pit YO3JW, the WWFF Global Awards Manager.
