All I've heard from NDQP is one op doing sideband 20 m, and I found out about that one from the spotters.

Anyone heard any ND CW, on any band?

(Somewhere all my mics are packed up in a box.)

I need North Dakota, so I was looking high and low yesterday.  Possibly due to proximity (MN) I had no luck at all.  I heard a few ND hams answering other CQ calls so I know they are there.  They're just hard to catch.

South Dakota, I have never heard.

I need ND too for W.A.S.

I'm  guessing MN to ND on 20 m might be too close.

Yesterday I could hear (SSB) a station loud and clear from Nebraska on 20 m but ND had him repeat it several times. Have you tried 40 m?

I need North Dakota too for WAS. I have been listening all week end. Lots of Virginias and a fair number of Oklahomas, but no North Dakotas on CW. Maybe a North Dakota ham will read this and offer us a sked.

I emailed four amateur radio clubs in North Dakota about setting up a CW sked. If anyone here is interested, send me an email and I will keep you posted.

ND maybe should be listed as country on DXCC for most of US / Canada. Check www.w6rk.com for county hunter spots. W0GXQ just ran on CW, yesterday and today in several counties in ND. Watch 7056.5, 14056.5, 18091.5, 21056.5. Good luck.

More. Listen to how each mobile does it. Give your call once, repeat RST received and your signal report to mobile. QSL w/ sase to confirm. Put your county on your card, mobile might need your county too.

I went to http://www.obriensweb.com/sked/  for a sked and worked ND five minutes later. I received a reply from one of my emails and now have ND on 20, 40 & 80 CW, all confirmed with LoTW

Now, what about Nebraska which I need for number 50? They have a QSO party later this month so I emailed some of the clubs in Nebraska, found them on the ARRL site.

Caught SD last week on the one night that was good (40M).  I am aware that I could just email a ND station and set up a contact, but that takes the challenge out of it.  I'm after the states and countries for my own, not for anyone's certificate so chance and CQ effort and propagation are the whole point.

Only missing 2 states now and RI has a QSO party coming.  Sooner or later, I'll get ND. Smiley

ARRL's November Sweepstakes is the best contest for getting WAS.  I've done it (without the cluster) two years running on CW and did it on SSB last year.  And that's not really anything special.  The 160 contests are also good contests to pick up states and so are the NAQPs.  But, the earliest of those are the NAQPs in August.
