Looking at the NG3K list:

XV (I know, everybody's laughing  Grin)

Not really if one is strictly QRP Shocked

Nice job to get this far on QRP.

Thanks Jonathan. Fortunately some of my more embarrassing needs weren't listed on the NG3K list. haha. Its all in fun though. It is enjoyable watching you guys work your way up, and interesting to see everybody's needs. I hope to get there too, it just may take a bit longer, although at this rate I may need to make it to 130.  Grin

I'm not laughing!  XV is the only one on the current NG3K list that I need.  Just seven more to go for me.

I need so many on 160, 30, 17 and 12 to finish DXCC on those bands that almost anything that will QSL (proper ones, not LOTW) is wanted!

It is fascinating to see everybody's needs. As I look at the list, many are top 10, but you have all those. And then one pops up like XV or Jonathan's 9Q. I'd give anything to find A92GE before the EUs find him. Although I've had my chances and so far no luck.
Zone 26 kicks our butt here in the southeast. By the time you consider distance, the pole, the local QRN, the attention they get when spotted - you have to have a really good antenna, some power (or both). I was hoping this cycle would be a big help, but it really wasn't strong enough overall for what I'm doing. So baring any right time, right place, right condx luck, it looks like its back to searching 20M long path in the morning for me.

Hi Larry,

I have made 3 QSOs with A9 in the last year from Oak Ridge, all barefoot with a 40 meter dipole:

07/10/14   12:26   A92GE   CW   12m
25/07/14   23:44   A92HK   SSB   20m
25/07/14   23:36   A92HK   SSB   17m

Signals were good in all cases, so there's hope.  Good luck.

73,
Mike

XV is so easy from the West Coast.  I work them for a mult in contests Smiley  This is further proof I'm on the West Coast and not the East Coast Grin

There are many great hams in Colorado, but that "purple haze" over the region has tricked them into thinking they are somewhere they are not.  On my next DXpedition, I'll have to remember to ask Colorado to QRX while I listen for the real West Coast.   Grin

Nope. think I heard or read about it once some folks were trying to get USFW permission but that was all and it may have been several years ago.  Hey but now that K1N was a good operation in their eyes, they'll open up others  Smiley

Hopefully I'll work you guys before you even start calling for the 'West Coast' Grin
