Electronic applications were at the FCC computer and office first. They
arrived Monday just after midnight, rest of the mail was delivered when the
offices opened in the morning. Was it that FCC processed the applications in
order they arrived? Electronic first, personal delivery, courier, mail after.
Makes sense to me. (I got my 2nd choice) Problem with some people not getting
any calls, might be with their choice too, if all selected the most desirable
calls and they overlap, after first 25 applicants get them, the rest of them
are out of luck. I submitted the mixture of nice and shorties plus some
"ugly" but short. Also some call areas have heavier population than others, 1
and 3 are not the densiest ones. There are still plenty of nice short calls
left. I waited for this 10 years!

You do have the option of turning this feature on or off.  

Think more in terms of using this type of feature during a Sweepstakes
where the majority of stations calling CQ are 40 db over.  It is true 
that it makes little sense in a DX contest.  The exchanges in DX contests
are much shorter and in some cases already know from the call, so there
is little need to this type of speed matching.

The all YL team that operated All California Six Foxy Ladies (AC6FL)for the
recent California QSO Party have printed a rather clever QSL card.  All DX
cards have been sent out via the buro.

U.S. stations that might want a card for their collections, please send your
card and a s.a.s.e to WA6YOO who is acting as QSL manager.  The card was
designed by Jo Ashley, KB6NMK, a commercial artist.

Address is:  Harry A. Hodges, WA6YOO
