Congratulations from Satellite DXCC #324! Doing it all on LEO is a heck of
an accomplishment.

Congratulations to John Papay, K8YSE, who has been awarded satellite DXCC
with 101 entities verified. The satellite DXCC standings are available at

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!)
