Congratulations to John Papay, K8YSE, who has been awarded satellite
DXCC with 101 entities verified. The satellite DXCC standings are
available at http://www.arrl.org/dxcc-standings
While there is no way to be certain, John's satellite DXCC is likely
the first to be obtained without the use of either HEO satellites or
sub-horizon Mode K propagation since prior to the launch of AO-10 in
1983. Starting on satellites in 2006, John did not even enjoy the
advantage of FO-20's higher LEO apogee or RS-15's high LEO orbit in
his quest to work and confirm 100 DXCCs via satellite.This is
certainly a noteworthy achievement!
Paul, N8HM (77 satellite DXCCs worked and counting!)
