Patience is rewarded: CQ WPX CW at last !

My CQ WPX certificate with "450 pfx" and "Europe" endorsements

I just returned from the Post Office, where I found a big yellow envelope from CQ with my certifcate #3344 for the WPX CW award. The postmark was July 29, 2014 but the certificate is dated 30 November 2012 ! 

The Europe endorsement sticker had arrived years ago and I had stored it carefully for the day I would receive the certificate. BTW, I have received all other WPX certificates (Mixed, SSB, Digital) within a few weeks of my application, only the CW certificate was missing. 

As of August 8, 2014, my WPX award status is as follows:
WPX AwardCertificate
PFXContinentsBands MHz
Mixed22561200EU, AS, NA3.5, 7.0 14, 21, 28
SSB3159650EU, AS14
CW3344400 EU-
Digital142700EU, AS3.5, 7.0, 14, 21

All contacts for all four WPX awards were confirmed via the ARRL Logbook of The World (LoTW). After I received the last pending WPX certificate, I submitted a LoTW application for the 1200 endorsement in Mixed plus a number of additional pfx, band and continent stickers.
