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

Welcome back to Paul Antos NS2N (ex-WB2ABD) and Gene Barnes K5GE who resume submitting
contact totals after at least one year of absence.

Jim Kingsbury NW6S's amateur radio license expired in August 2018. I attempted to contact him
about this but I have received no reply. He therefore now has a "(lic exp)" entry on the Top List.

By his specific request, Peter Lunn N4UP was removed from the Top List this month. His first
submission to the Top List was on 12-Aug-16. His last submission was on 30-Apr-17.
