ACTUALLY YOU ARE CORRECT...WE SHOULDN'T PAY ATTENTION TO THE FORMAT ON
INQUIRIES ON THE BB BUT SHOULD DIRECT OUR ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS ASKED...
I LIVE IN MASSACHUSETTS BUT AM UNABLE TO PROVIDE CONTACTS FROM THE TWO
ADJOINING STATES AT THIS TIME...
I HOWEVER AM ABLE TO SENT RTTY ART THROUGH THE BB SO THAT EVERYONE CAN ENJOY
SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PAST 40 YEARS OF TTY...
I CURRENTLY HAVE BETTER REGUARD FOR MY FELLOW HAMS THAN TO SEND MESSAGES IN
ALL CAPS...WHICH SEEMS TO IRRITATE MANY OF THEM...BUT IF IT BECOMES A
RENEWED TREND, I DON'T WANT TO BE THE LAST ONE TO JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON.
I APPRECIATE THAT YOU TOOK THE TIME TO POINT OUT THAT I WAS POSSIBLY DOING
SOMETHING INCORRECTLY BY SUGGESTING THAT THE ORIGINAL POSTER WAS MAYBE
PERHAPS BREAKING CONVENTION.
I APPRECIATE ALL OF THE EFFORTS YOU PUT INTO ACTIVATING NEW GRIDS PLUS THE
EFFORT YOU PUT INTO CORRECTING OPERATORS WHO DON'T COLOR INSIDE YOUR LINES.
FIRST SAT; RS-6

anyone contacted him about the *content* of his message?

Maybe there's someone in those states, or someone who can quickly
drive to them, who can help him with his WAS award via satellite. I
know I have worked hams in both states over the past few months,
plus there are probably others that are not far away that could put
them on the air. Even for those who already have confirmations with
those states, the grids that come on the air from those places could
be of interest to others as well.
Thanks to two traveling hams, I was able to finally work Delaware
twice in the past few weeks after never hearing a peep from there in
almost 3 1/2 years on the birds. When I returned from my road trip
last week, I had a QSL in the mailbox for one of those two QSOs,
and I am off to meet a local card checker to review my application
for a satellite WAS award tomorrow evening. :-)
