Do You Know? A Trivia Answer for Our Readers:

Last week, ARRL News Editor S. Khrystyne Keane, K1SFA, told ARRL Letter readers about the long and proud history of the ARRL Sweepstakes http://www.arrl.org/news/stories/2009/10/29/11170/?nc=1, mentioning that at one point, The Philippines was a multiplier in the Sweepstakes, as was Cuba (as part of the West Indies Section). We wondered what years that The Philippines and the West Indies Sections ceased to be multipliers in Sweepstakes. Unfortunately, we didn't receive any correct answers. The Philippines was no longer a Section as of 1946 and in August 1988, two new Sections -- Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands -- replaced the West Indies Section (Cuba disappeared from the West Indies Section in 1940). Thanks to everyone who sent in answers. Look for another trivia question in a future edition of The ARRL Letter.
