More qualify for KPMNPA Merit Awards

Two more Merit Awards have been issued for working 45 under the Keith Roget Memorial National Parks Award (KRMNPA). These went to Andrew Davis VK1DA and Tim Hann VK5AV, adding to the rapidly growing list of Merit Award recipients now at eight.

Andrew VK1DA made his first contact with Wayne VK3WAM/P who was activating Terrick Terrck National Park in September 2011 and finished with #45 on May 3, with Paul VK5PAS/3 who was at Murray-Sunset National Park. Another achiever in portable working Amanda VK3FQSO alerted Andrew of Paul's activation during a trip to the Riverland region, and Andrew very quickly finished working all 45 VK3 Parks.

Well done to Tim VK5AV who has submitted an eligible log for the KRMNPA chasers Merit Award. His first KRMNPA contact was with Amateur Radio Victoria's Centenary station VK100ARV during the first KRMNPA activation weekend in November 2011.

Since then, Tim VK5AV has been adding the balance of stations slowly but surely, culminating in the final contact #45 with VK3VTH/P in Greater Bendigo National Park on April 17. This photo shows a very proud recipient with his Merit Award Plaque.
