The Iron Range Net maintains a log of all those stations checking into the net, keeping a running total of the number of check-ins for each station. George, KR6FB, maintains the log and awards the certificates. Due to the cost of printing and postage ($4.00 to send a mountable certificate by USPS) , if your email is not listed on QRZ – please provide George with your email address so that a printable electronic version of the certificate can be sent to you.
With some of our regular net participants approaching the 700 mark, it is time to begin thinking of a design for the 700th Certificate of Participation. A lot has happened in the intervening 14 years – so it is appropriate to remember the founders. Hence, the Founder’s Edition has been suggested as a design theme.
Suggestions for design modifications are encouraged. Ideas should be submitted by June 2022 – about the time the first such certificate can be awarded.
Net control operators are welcome to utilize the suggested preamble to call the net.Read More ...
The net control operator is asked to keep a record of those checking in and provide George, KE0GXQ with the list to allow him to track individual totals.

The log is shown below in its own window. In order to utilize the lookup feature of the log, the user must navigate to the window below. The full results of the lookup are best seen at a 75% reduction; otherwise, the scroll bars on either side of the window need to be positioned so that the lookup results can be viewed.
The last time the log was updated is located in the upper right hand corner of the log. Certificates are awarded for 30, 100, 300, and 500 check-ins. The number of check-ins can be found by entering your call sign into the yellow box in the window below and pressing enter. By scrolling down the spreadsheet, the total number of check-ins by call can be seen for all stations.
