Congrats Bob!
 I remember finishing my WAS up.  Now if the ARRL would find my WAC 
submission that was lost (along with a few non-replacable QSL cards), I 
would be even happier.

SAT Operators, I just received my WAS-Satellite Award #341 which ended 
upcovering 38 years of casual operating! Earlier this year, I was going 
through my paper QSL's getting readyto make some submissions for various 
ARRL Awards at the DaytonHamvention. Sorting through the Cards, I made a 
stack of SatelliteQSL's. I started to notice that I had quite a few States 
confirmed andwondered if I was finally close to WAS even though I wasn't 
really inthe hunt very seriously. Would you believe I had them ALL worked 
but was only missing a QSLfrom Vermont?!! Happily, it was Nick KB1RVT who I 
KNEW was alwaysgood for a confirmation which he quickly returned. Oldest 
QSL used - W7LSV in Oregon, 10/13/78 Oscar 8 Mode A CWLast State WKD - 
North Dakota W0N (Wyatt AC0RA) 11/13/15 SO50 FMLast QSL Rcvd - KB1RVT Nick 
in Vermont, 1/4/16 SO50 FM 50 States on SAT, 50 Paper QSL's, 38 Years!!  
WHEW!! Thanks to all who helped & 73,    Bob K8BL   (AMSAT since 1979)
