Congratulations!  I recently spent a few days, off and on, copying my paper
logs into electronic format.  Reminded me of my spare time job years ago
doing key punch work.  Anyway, it was fun to see what was there.  I need to
ping a few people to finish up some awards, which I will do in the winter
months.  I uploaded to eQSL and LoTW my AO-10 and AO-13 contacts.  I got
exactly 2 hits out of several hundred.  ;)

I guess that waiting around a couple of years or so to finally submit my
cards for satellite VUCC paid off.

I know there was some talk about this some time ago, as to who would get
number 200.  Well, the mailman came and that's the number on mine!

Seems strange considering almost all the contacts on the FM birds are a grid
exchange; guess many are either not collecting the 100 cards, or aren't
submitting them.  

Having amateur satellites available for almost 40 years, and only 200
satellite VUCC awards, WOW.
