All 50 states QSL cards arrive at ARRL

QSL cards from all 50 of the United States of America have now arrived
at the ARRL QSL bureau in Newington, CT and the process to file for a
special "WAS from Space" for Bill McArthur can begin.

McArthur will depart the International Space Station on April 8  after
serving on board for nearly 190 days. He will take several amateur radio
achievements to Earth with him:

First to work all states (CONFIRMED)
First to work all seven continents on VHF and UHF
37 school contacts, the most ever worked by an individual
First to work 100+ DXCC entities from space
Only expedition to work Peter I Island
Over 1700 general contacts

Thanks for a great six months!
