It seems like the first 100 are the hardest to get these days,
because band conditions are not conducive to operators being on
the air. Reaching the next plateau will come sooner than you
realize, because TDW proved that when people are on the air,
contacts CAN be made.
Looking forward to you receiving another sticker for LONP

You periodically post my status, so I'll offer this summary
update: The request for LONP has been submitted :)
I wasn't a serioius competitor in TDW. I had neither the
multi-band antenna nor the time available to try to rack up a high
score. So I operated as a search-and-pounce "sharpshooter",
taking advantage of the contest as an opportunity to contact PODXS
members I had never logged before. Going into the contest: 96
members logged. After the contest: 104 members logged. Mission
I know it's a small achievement compared to Jerry N9AVY or
our other more experienced members, but having just started using
PSK-31 in Jan 2017, I'm pretty happy to make the first plateau.
On to 150!
Thank you for your continued encouragement, both before and
after the TDW contest.
