peruse the rules pertaining to The Stew Perry TopBand Challenge instigated

The Boring Amateur Radio Club hopes that you have been being very busy
attending to the list of December chores so that you may freely operate
the listed time slot. We would suggest that instead of coming home from a
day of activities, eating dinner then falling asleep that you would discuss
your loved ones just what the perfect plaque might be for you to sponsor for
the 2017 edition of The Stew Perry TopBand Challenge. All 2016 plaques
have now been sent out to the skilled operators who conquered their unique
category. If you won a 2016 plaque and have not received it within a week,
then notify InterPol and then The Boring Amateur Radio Club as clearly a
ring of smart skulduggery savants have stolen your work of art!
Steel yourselves, as there will be more announcements in the near
for this DX Challenge as conditions necessitate.
This Contest is fun!
73 and I remain,
