I just want a card from Bouvet!  :)))))

Steve, N4JQQ, DXAC Delta but I am not positive about that.

I'm in a similar boat. If they went back to the nice plaques, I would gladly re-order to replace my plastic 5BDXCC and Challenge "plaques".

Great news.  I did write to the CEO expressing my displeasure.  If ARRL
goes back to wood plaques I WILL APPLY.  Right now I'm 3 states on 10M
away from 5 Band WAS and 52 countries away from 5 Band DXCC so I really
hope this issue gets resolved quickly.
