[amsat-bb] LOTW QSL - K8BL Rover Glitch

Hi Matthew,

I think the Canadian Rover Grids of mine escaped somehow. My suspicion 
is that K8BL/VEx didn't get thrown in with the ones from plain K8BL, possibly
because they have a different DXCC Country Code. Dunno!! LoTW Gurus at
ARRL are still analyzing and helpful.

TNX/73,    Bob  K8BL

P.S.  Bruce KK5DO sent a good suggestion, but LoTW asked me to standby until
    they finish their analysis.

Hi Bob,

Some of mine have been restored, FM16/26 and EL87, along with a couple
others. There are still some missing however. Thanks for going to the
extra effort to sort it all out!
