Hi Zack and all,

>From the way I read it, it applies to the initial application as well as 
endorsements.  It doesn't descriminate between them.

BTW, for those looking and wondering as well.  It states "20 cents per QSO", 
not "20 cents per grid".  So if you have a QSO with multiple grids, say 2 
grids or 4 grids, it still only cost 20 cents.  Don't count the grids as a 
single QSO, unless the QSO was with a single grid.  It'll save yourself a 
few cents.

>From the looks of it, my initial application could cost me nearly $50.
