Zone 26 at solar minimum is also quite difficult for me in W3. But it will be easier for you in W9. 30M greyline, or 20M/17M in your evening would seem most likely.

On the other hand, with me on East Coast, Zone 37 is super easy for me, there are several DXpeditions each year. This year I have E31A and 5X3C and 5X2B and 5H3EE. And I'm sure there will be more DXpeditions this fall.

I've got the basic 40 waz hanging on the wall and I've got 150something towards 5bwaz. There are some "easy" ones and some hard ones remaining. I don't think I'll ever see 200 for 5b with my current setup and postage stamp lot. I don't really actively chase after them (yet), they sometimes just come with chasing challenge.

While I have zone 19 confirmed on paper, I'd like to see some in LoTW so it shows 40 in my totals online... gotta find / work a zone 19 LoTW user..

Noticed that 6 posting here are eligible for 5BWAZ and 1 is eligible for 160M WAZ. Found 2 of the posters in the listings for 5BWAZ. For anyone who may or may not be aware, the 1st plateau for those awards are...

5BWAZ: 150 zones, but must have basic WAZ award to apply
160M WAZ: 30 zones

Applying with the minimum required will result with the lowest possible award number.

When LoTW first supported WAZ, many weren't aware they were eligible for the above awards. The awards manager was backlogged after this occurred, but worked his way out of it in just a few weeks. Supporting WAZ was a win-win for ARRL, CQ Magazine, and those of us who participate in WAZ.

I would be eligible for the "Clayton's 5BWAZ and 160 m WAZ" with 196 and 33 zones respectively, but wouldn't feel "right" applying until I have 200/40. Maybe that's just me.
