Brett, It is 2005 now. ;-) We are closing in on 3 years after the 2002

I last received a certificate for 2000 for 1st Place Ontario, 2nd place
Canada. I can only dream about placing outside of Canada with my station.
BTW, I could barely hear you in the AA CW, not well enough to work.

The plaque was for 2004 CQWW Rtty First Place Canada SOAB LP. Hey, that's
pretty good turnaround. Less than a year. 

My intent wasn't to complain (well maybe a little) but really to find out if
they were already sent and somehow got lost in the mail. Not unheard of.

Last received here appear to be from 2000.

You got a plaque from last year's CQ-something RTTY contest?  Maybe I've
lost it & only dreamt of a continental top-scoring effort in the previous
millennium, but those should take at least five years to arrive.
