    Congrats on your achievement! I rather like the new plaque, although it would have been nice if they got the lettering parallel with the edge when they put the extra band "buttons" on it.

    My almost obsessive need to have things parallel or at right angles would never allow it :p

    No 60m Endorsement available?

    " No 60m Endorsement available? " Nope ! Not likely in the forseen future.

    Congrats on your achievement. 80M CW contests finally pushed me over the top.. Dont think I can even
    try on 160 as I don't have the acreage anymore to get that 9th band.

    I have 128 countries confirmed on 160. Most were worked on my 0.2 acre back yard Inverted-L. A few were worked with a top loaded vertical, which used more of my 0.3 acre yard, but running the top loading wire out to the front yard toward the powerlines made for a noisy antenna on receive. 97 were worked on data and 101 on 160 CW. I found it helpful to work the DX before contests as operators were testing out their temporary stations.

    Is that a plaque or a piece of paper?

    It is a plaque. Made of some sort of heavy acrylic/plastic. They can mass produce the plaque and just add the engraved name plate and WARC buttons.

    Probably a dumb question but ... does one have to apply for DXCC on each single band to get the 5B DXCC award?

    Have paper cards but only need three more on LOTW (for 80M) to get there.
