I had posted a few weeks ago that I think KE5JL did put DL88 on the air for NPOTA, but that would have been in 2016, before the start of the ARRL Grid Chase statistics. By the time I got him (30 Apr 2016) he was in DL89.

Just checked because I thought I may have worked it on NPOTA, but never did. Surprised no one went out there for NPOTA event. There are a lot of grids unworked in Texas.

Very interesting Rick! That sounds like a challenge!

I was dinking around on the ARRL International Grid Chase website this morning - No I am NOT playing in that effort - and stumbled across a feature that tells you how many times a certain grid has been worked since their contest started Jan 1, 2018. So I thought I'd plug in my most troubling grid - DL88 in the Big Bend National Park in Texas and see what was happening.
Ten months in and it has NOT been worked; not once, not on any band or any mode,not by anyone! It is a tough one!
