Congratulations to all the award recipients!

I'd like to point out a couple of them. First, congrats to Hector on
the Century Award. The Century Award is tough enough to complete from
the East Coast of the United States, but Hector managed to complete it
from Cuba. He made many of these QSOs with homebrew equipment and had
the additional handicap of not being able to use AO-7's Mode B
transponder due to Cuban regulations, so he had to wait until FO-29
was near apogee on the right passes to make his longest distance QSOs.

Second, congratulations to Carl on the Sexagesimal Award. Like me, he
has operated solely with portable equipment and low power and he
appears to be on the way to beating my pace to the Century Award (it
took me 23 months from when I started getting on the air daily, Carl
has been on for only about a year).


Paul, N8HM
