That is great Don, and I can't think of anyone more deserving.  This
subject is close to me, as I am the OOC (official observer coordinator) for
my ARRL section.  I am very protective of the AM operations on the bands.
We/I encourage the "good op" cards more than we ever have, and I know more
gentlemen on AM that deserve what you got than most any of those on other

Anyway, congrats.  I remember (years ago) when some OO's sent cards to
AM'ers because they had a carrier and two sidebands!  The criteria these
days for passing that test to become an OO are hard and tricky, as it
should be.
