Re: W9SMR - Stan - Completes 366!

When I did it , it  took about 2200 (?) contacts and it sure looked insurmountable ... like standing at the base of Mt. Everest  and looking up !  Just chip away at it... little by little.
But I tried to make about 20 or more contacts every day and before long I had it done. Weekends were more fruitful  with tons of DX and I would make like 50  on Saturdays/Sundays.  Could do this in maybe 3-4 hours. I was also lucky to be semi-retired and home a lot of weekdays, but weekday DX wasn't as plentiful.
There will be times when finding letters was a problem; especially A' & N's and a few others... you'd be surprised how many countries have the letter A !
If anyone is after A suffixes I can schedule contacts..  have N9AVY  &  K9ATI so you get twice as many.  Be sure to read the rules as to how many time you can use same callsign.
It was fun and worked a lot of endorsements doing WTW without thinking about them. Am almost thinking about a second go at WTW ... maybe there can be a "double header"   sticker for that !?

Excellent. Honestly, I think the WtW is more impressive; to do both would be amazing.
