Finally, I submitted for my OSCAR (Satellite) Worked All States Award from the ARRL. It arrived back in November.
I have had all 50 states worked for nearly three years. I had about 45 worked in under a year. The last pesky ones were HI, NH, and RI. I had worked RI but didn’t get a card for quite a while. NH was tricky. Sure, once I got it, then I get more confirmations out of the state in no time. That’s how it works.
I was able to confirm 45 of the 50 via Logbook of the World. I submitted a hybrid application. The five remaining paper cards had to be checked by an official ARRL Awards Checker.
