I've been in touch with him to provide information on the stations I'm aware of.
Congratulations on WAS!!!! Good for you. I doubt seriously there are too many Satellite WAS awards earned via LEO satellites exclusively. That's quite an accomplishment.
Speaking of which ... I'd like to formally request BK29 as one of your rare grids to activate on the next expedition..... ;-)
73 and congrats again,
Tim - N3TL
