NFN USA-CA #53 (17-Mar-71) has the earliest issued USA-CA Award in the Top Lists
K4PBX USA-CA #1259 (9-Nov-16) has the latest issued USA-CA Award in the Top Lists

38 submissions is the highest number received in a single month (between 3-Feb-16 and 5-Mar-16)

33 submissions were received since the last Top Lists posting on 3-Jun-18 from:

N1API AD1C KD2KHJ K2MF N2MH OM2VL W3DLM WA3QNT KC3X WA4EEZ WD4OIN
N4RS W4SIG AB4WL W4YDY N5MLP KG5RJ KM6HB W6OUL N6PDB N7LFX KK7X
N8CIJ N8KIE K8MW K8OOK K8QWY NA8W N9JF WYA KDEQ WGXQ NFN

Welcome back to KG5RJ who resumes submitting contact totals after at least one year of absence.

By his specific request, KC6AWX was removed from all Top and Single Band 3077 Lists this month. His
first submission was on 10-Aug-06 in the very first Top List. His last submission was on 30-Dec-16.

There were several new MARAC Levels achieved in the Mixed Modes this month as well as a few new
CCA Levels scattered about (see below). In spite of the fast approaching sunspot minimum projected
for 2019, the Digital Modes have become really popular, mobiles are still going out to run and there
are still lots of county contacts to be made on different bands and modes. All those who have been
staying active during this period of poor and sometimes very strange conditions have my kudos!
