This was very confusing to us the first time as well. cnMaestro does not make it clear what is going on.
You’re in a DPA area - cnMaestro makes it sound like the DPA is active and so you didn’t get granted. What actually happened is you’re in an area that could be affected by the DPA move list. Because there is an involved calculation that takes place to make sure you won’t interfere it has to be done overnight during CPAS.
So what’s happening is the SAS suspends your grant until CPAS runs overnight, then it will determine that, as you said, you’re hundreds of miles inland, pointed into a valley in the opposite direction of the coast and don’t cause any issues and it will approve you. Sometime between 4am and 7am Eastern Time.
From that point forward you should be good to go, unless the DPA activates, but even so you most likely wouldn’t be affected due to being inland so far.
Does that make sense? It was very confusing to me as well the first time until someone told me “just let it sit overnight and you’ll get approved”.
cnMaestro really should show “Grant Pending” rather than stating it’s in a move list that’s activated.
