As I described in an earlier post, I have made great progress in the past 8 weeks toward what may turn out to be a "first" in Ham Radio: 5 Band WAS as a mobile operator, with all award contacts being made less than 50 miles from my home QTH in Springfield, Pa, all CW at 100 watts output into a High Sierra HS 1500 Screwdriver. (Please see my earlier post for more details)
As of 12/31/01, I have QSOed 88 percent of the needed state/band QSOs (220 out of 250), in just 8 weeks.
But its getting harder to work "New Ones" as I progress. So I am going to list the states I still need on each band. IF YOU ARE IN ANY OF THESE STATES, AND ARE ACTIVE ON HF CW, I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE AN E MAIL FROM YOU REGARDING A SKED. I QSL WITH AN SASE TO ALL NEEDED CONTACTS.
NEEDED STATES BY BAND - N8LXR/M
80 METERS: AK, HI, IA, KY, LA, MT, NE, NV, OK,
RI, UT, VT, WY
40 METERS: HI, MT,
20 METERS: NV
15 METERS: AK, GA, HI, MA, MS, ND, RI, SC, UT,
10 METER: AK, RI, SC
I can accommodate a variety of sked times and will work around your schedule.
So far as I know, should I complete 5 Band WAS as a mobile operator, this will mark the first time that a mobile station has achieved the award, and your station may be part of a unique happening in the arena of HF Awards.
73 to all and health and prosperity in 2002!
