Way to go guys.  Congratulations to all of you.  If any one needs a card
from me with both grids, drop me a line.  I have failed to do in the past,
but will start doing from now on.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Reverse VUCC Award Standings Updated for Satellites

The Central States VHF Society has just updated
their website to reflect applications for VUCC-r,
Reverse VUCC, filed some time ago.


This award is given to those who have operated via satellites
in more than 100 grids away from their home grid.  There
are now four operators who have achieved this distinction.
They are N7SFI-200 grids, N5AFV-109 grids, ND9M-325 grids,
and KD4ZGW-100 grids.

The rules require that applicants submit proof of contacts made
from these away from home grids.  So if you work someone signing
"portable" (meaning they are operating away from home), please
remember to include your grid as well as the grid they were
operating from on your qsl.  This will provide the proof of contact
required by the Central States VHF Society.

Congratulations to all of these operators and especially to the
newest additions to the list, Jim ND9M and Rob KD4ZGW.  Well done!
