For quite some time, the SOTA awards scheme has been operating on a very restricted basis. A few weeks ago, resumption of the issuing of Awards certificates was announced. Each certificate still has a cost, but now one can apply for a certificate and save on postage costs by selecting to receive the document as a pdf file.
I did some checking and applied for some certificates earned over the last couple of years, some of which were qualified quite some time ago. April 2017 seems to feature!
