For those of you who ran the CW SS this weekend, was there an easy section you missed?  I didn't make a serious effort but made about 150 QSOs and 70 sections, and I missed-Michigan!  That's right-Michigan (or that state up north if you are an Ohio State fan).  How do you miss Michigan?  It is probably in the top 5 sections for population.

FWIW, MI is the eighth most populous. Reference: https://www.qrz.com/i/census.html
I didn't work at SS at all. I was just shy of 100 Qs (SO AB LP, unassisted) and only about half the sections... but, I DID work that other state North of OH.  Wink

Ham population doesn't mean a thing.
California has the most licensees.
Yet, one year, I didn't get the San Francisco section.

But California also has been broken down into several sections, so I am sure that some of the sections are not as populous as some states-same for Texas, Florida, and New York.

I operated the first 8 hours, remotely operating a very good station (W4AAW) and actually never worked UT! I also missed NT, but that isn't unusual. I was going for maximum points so didn't really about multipliers, but missing UT???

Not SS, but... my last state confirmed for 5BWAS? Michigan on 10M! Amazing isn't it?

I didn't have time to do the whole SS and knew in advance I wouldn't, but decided to try for 83/83 (83 contacts in 83 sections) for a sweep with only 83 QSOs.

MISSED IT.

Did operate 6-1/2 hours between Saturday and Sunday, obviously about 98% listening and tuning around.  No need to keep a computer log/dupe because when every contact is a new section, there can't be any dupes anyway.

My "I can't believe I missed it!" list includes RI, SC, SNJ, NNY, GTE, NE and WY.  My "I CAN believe I missed it!" list is NT.

I worked 75/75, running about 35W from a Century/21 which I just acquired last week but it's so easy to use the "learning curve" was about 30 seconds. Wink   But just rag chewing I work RI, SC, SNJ, NNY, NE, WY and GTE all the time.  I do not work NT all the time and rarely hear it.
