DXers produce list of desired countries. Six meter operators have compiled
such a list of grid squares, I suspect our list would be similar. If you
have not read about the Fred Fish (w5ff) award, it is interesting. I think
Randy, n7sfi is probably our Fred Fish as I don't know of anyone else who
has all of the grids touched by the lower 48 states.
I would like to see two lists; one for Grids and one for States. Satellite
operations should make for an easy WAS, but I know it took me way longer
than I thought it should have.
A few years ago to spark interest QRP-L had a one state per weekend deal for
QRP ops. Maybe we should do a one state a weekend for satellite ops?
Anyway... I would be willing to help with such a project. I think a good
starting point might be a web site where folks could report what they have
or have not worked. It might even be enough to get me to update my grid

What are considered "rare" grid squares for satellite ops?
Maybe more of us could activate them, if we only knew where they were.....
