CQ-WE Certificate Gallery

One of the traditions of the annual CQ-WE Contest has been the "Host Site" and the "Certificates" that they created. The CQ-WE Contest has meant a lot of things to a lot of people, but the Certificates are truly "Treasured Wallpaper" for many: Each Host Location over the years has traditionally designed, printed, and distributed their own certificates to each of the participants and winners. All Good, Some Great, but all Treasured!

Special thanks go to Vern-K0IEW, Tom-KT3TT(WA3UFU), Bob-K2GLS, John-W4BXI, W9HJL, Dennis-N4NR, Dave-KE9KT, David-K8ON, and Rob-KD8WK for sharing theirs with us here. If you have a Certificate that we are missing, please contact us so we can add it to this Gallery.
