Awards William Dekker, PA0WLB

Many ham radio operators pursue a facet of the hobby called Awards Chasing in recognition of their achievements. There are literally thousands of awards offered by hundreds of Amateur Radio Organizations world-wide. Although I'm not a fanatic award hunter, I have achieved several awards since my return to ham radio in 1996, in particular after becoming active on the shortwave bands in 2005.
