Wow.  Maybe when the lockdown lifts I’ll dust off the old FT-100D and do a road trip for you :)

Thanks. Don't know about Barry working all CA grids, but I couldn't find it in list.

Only need 3 more to finish CA grids.

Congrats Jerry!  Well done.

Am I right that only Barry VA7GEM is the only person to work all the grids in California?  That’s pretty hard to do, but he always has a big sig here.

Thanks ! I'm jealous too because you finished up WI, IA, NE, MO, and AR. Most of those are too close to work on 20m, but maybe on 40m.

Eric-
If the Endorsement Standings page can still be relied on....?????...yes, Barry VA7GEM is the only one to have completed California.  And Jerry - N9AVY is the only person to complete Maine!  Steve W3HF has two "onlys" - Kansas and North Dakota.  And there are a whole bunch of states that no one has completed.  These grid endorsements get really, really tough in the  states that have less populated areas.  In fact, there are states that have grids with NO licensed hams, let alone a ham that operates PSK31.  But Barry, Jerry, and Steve do each own a state all by themselves!  Congrats to all three of them.  Well done!

Strange conditions this afternoon

Jerry N9AVY
 

Was on 20m calling "CQ" and got answered by WB2BEV... started to answer him, but WA2DX tail-ended him, but that wasn't all W2EVU also got into the fray. Finally called WB2BEV and he answered, but w2evu was also answering. However, the only station to get in the log was WB2BEV. Some folks just don't wait to be acknowledged....

17 not working for me.  Not sure if it's the antenna or band conditions or my location.

Going over to 20 and try my luck, and back to vertical.

Maybe 17 another day.

Hi Chuck,

I saw a faint trace, but no print.  Sorry.

I did see a trace I just caught after a CQ and I copied, “…AVY:  Jerry?
