    Late to the game, only started on Monday & only doing CW. Got A, B, E, F, G, H, P, R so far.

    SKCC run a similar event in January, "K3Y", but ops located in each US call area K3Y/0-9 plus KH6/KL7/KP4 and participating DX stns in 6 WAC areas = 19 total for sweep. No RTTY, let alone FT8, I'm afraid; only straight key CW :)

    Worked Arnie N6HC (famous DXpeditoner) as W6B last night on 40M. Tried W6O, but my mobile signal was too lame to make it over the pileup. Still 8 to go!!!! W6A,C,D,E, L, O, S and U!!!
    W6O had an incredible signal into the West Coast about 6PM last night!! He must have and excellent station!!!

    Still only need L & D. Both still no-shows. Some false spots last night on 40 for L but turned out to be one of the other guys. Wish people would listen first before spotting the wrong station. Also wish people wouldn't volunteer to be part of something if they don't plan to operate. It's day 5 and still no indication W6L has been active.

    Found the problem with my mobile station. Had it been working, I would have easily logged W6O last night. I had checked the antenna with my antenna analyzer and it said it was good!! but it turns out the problem was a bad cable between the Coax Switch and the wattmeter. Also the antenna PL259 was one of those 2 piece jobs where U screw a mini Connector into the big connector. That was loose. I am constantly monitoring the DX SUMMIT as Time is running out. If any of the stations I need pop up on 40M I can run out the parking lot and try mobile. Right now the W6E station is on 40M CW, but I have no way to use CW mobile (no hand key) Don't think he'd like a toggle switch at 3WPM.

    Thanks Pat, miss you guys too, AND Sue as well. Is she participating in Rte 66? I spotted W6T for you earlier, but not sure if you saw the spot or not. Told Ron to keep and eye (ear) out for you too. Continued good luck in hunting them all down.Still a few days to go...... 73.....
