I know there are many out there that hunt grid squares, but I don't think there are as many hunting states. I am hunting states and with just a little tweaking of the CQ call, remove the grid square 4 digit number letter combination and put in your state abbreviation. Makes thing very much easier. I append my CQ's with NNJ. For instance, CQ K2WH NNJ Instead of CQ K2WH FN21 With the grid squares I am constantly looking up on my grid square map where the station is located, what state he is in. When a grid square covers or overlaps multiple states then its just a guess unless you are fast enough to look up the calls location before he gets picked up by another station.
