I needed Vermont and Rhoad Island to finally qualify for WAS via my 100-watt mobile station only. The New England QSO Party came through for me! At first, I couldn't hear any east coast stations from here in Santa Barbara, CA. However, after a few hours, everything changed. I found Vermont coming in strong, and they came right back to me. Then, I found Rhoad Island was the next station up the band, and had an easy contact within a minute later. I wanted to see whether I could contact each state from my car, and I'm finally done. It's been a long pursuit, because I usually have only a few hours per month available for air time. Now I can focus on DXCC via mobile. I have almost 60 countries confirmed so far. This has also been a long pursuit.
