Net Controller's Award Page Last Updated: 15 Mar 2023
After a suggestion from Steve Richards G4HPE it was realised that Net Control can be daunting for beginners, and the only accolades W.A.B. make for Net Control is for experienced net controllers as part of the W.A.B. Squares Diamond Award, or by the committee presenting the Frank Parkhurst trophy for outstanding contributions to net control.
With that in mind, W.A.B. has instigated the Net Controller's Award, specifically aimed at new net controllers. All levels of this award are FREE in recognition of the valuable work the net controllers make to the smooth operation of on-air activities. Similar to the Net Control element of the W.A.B. Squares Diamond award, assistance to other net controllers either by Mentoring or by providing BackUp Control gain hours at half rate (i.e. each hour of mentoring/backup control gains 30 minutes credit). The certificates are for the first 1 Hour of net control or assistance, with endorsements at 5 Hours, then each 5 extra hours net control/assistance. A new certificate will be issued at each 50 hours net control.
Please ensure you are using the latest version of the tracker. Latest version = v1.2 (version history: v1.2 has corrected totals if greater than 24 hours and half time for Mentor/Backup Control fixed)
