WA3WUL has been working via AO-51 from Delaware recently.
He seemed to hear very well and worked quite a few stations
on this morning's pass at 1138z, 4 May 2010.

According to QRZ.com he is just north of Wilmington and just
inside the border about two miles from Concord Pike and Naamans
Road where I operated from in July 2009.  ND9M/P operated from
several locations in Delaware  prior to that and WD9EWK/P operated
from Delaware during the AMSAT Symposium in the Fall of 2009.
N3ZLL/M has operated in Delaware before and was worked via the
ISS in February 2009.  I am not aware of anyone else operating from
Delaware over the past few years who actually lives there (until now).

For those working towards their WAS, be sure to listen for WA3WUL.
States that have activity now can become rare overnight.  Wyoming
was very common when NN6T lived there; when he moved there was no
one on for some time.  K7DRA became active and Wyoming was no
problem.  Lately I have not heard him and Wyoming is now becoming
rare again.   South Carolina was rare at one time.  Now there are
many operating from that state including the very active K4YYL.

If you are working towards WAS, don't miss out on working WA3WUL
if you still need Delaware.
