QRP ARCI Numbers

Yesterday morning on the way out the door I had a stack of
awards that I have gotten over the years for many things
and I had them in frames suitable for hanging, but took
them down for obvious reasons.

Well, I told you about the Mapsco people using 5 mil plastic
to laminate certificates and stuff, so I took a pile out
of the frames dropped them off at Mapsco and then picked them
up on the way home. These guys do great work and you gotta
see them to believe them.

The reason for this post is to let you know that like a few
others I have two QRP ARCI numbers. I found, behind another
award, an old certificate dated 1971 with the old QRP ARCI
symbol showing 100W as being QRP. My number then was 3471.
It was signed by Robert L. Jenks, K7ZVA, then General
Secretary of the club.

The later certificate is not dated but has the number 6285
which I have been using in all the tests and stuff.

The problem is that I just ordered 1,000 QSL cards from W4MPY
with the 6285 number on it. I shouldn't have done that, as
I want to use the older number. The 3471 as K5FJZ and the
latter as K5FO, thus the confusion probably on renewal.
This call changing business is really scarey.

So, I'm now back to #3471, but I may give you the other
during a test to see if you are paying attention. :-)
