dxing is sorta like a marathron, the first 26 are easy, but the last .2 are real hard. in a contest weekend you can work 150 175 diffrent countries, then it becomes a waiting game, time on the river, you listen and hope.
but it shure  keeps you out of the bars!

while you wait, just start filling in the other band, soon you will have 500

Yes, the quad is still up & qrping with it is easy compared to what Larry has done, 298 worked qrp with basically wires or a mini beam at 30 ft, THAT IS HUGE, This thread is all abt Larry and his persistance, I am humbled, 73 Dan WG5G.

Well said, Dan.  Me too.  Larry's achievements are a reminder to all of us on the human element in DXing...how the operator's skills can overcome the challenges of low power in a pileup.
