    I worked a few stations in the sweepstakes today from the Yukon to Maryland. I am not a contester but it is fun a way to make some quick QRP SSB contacts. It is also a good way to get a few states
    I need. I always want to make sure I work enough contacts that the guys who worked me get points for working me. I found myself today hunting the few states I need as the band began to turn and I realized I had not really work enough folks. So I had to switch from state hunting to taking anyone I could get. Still fun!

    5N7Q (Nigeria) and PZ5W (Suriname) were strong on 30M CW this evening. I put both in the log without too much trouble.

    PZ5W confirmed on LOTW an hour or two later (my 100th LOTW QSL on 30m); Nigeria is a QRP ATNO for me (no. 69) in my QRP DXCC chase. That’s a productive day for me! Lol!

    Also good signals from 6W7PCT (Senegal) and C56DF (The Gambia), but the band changed before I could work them.

    J68GD (St. Lucia) was another Caribbean chip shot from last Friday.

    PJ4/K4BAI Curaçao 30m CW
    QRP ATNO (#70!). Wkd 5w to 24’ vertical end-fed wire.
    Not sure how I’d never managed to put PJ4 in the log with QRP until now...
    30 more to go for QRP DXCC!

    YN2CC Nicaragua 30m CW
    Not an ATNO, but the first YN contact on 30m.
