    Got one of the remaining few on 160, now just Alaska.

    Using FT8 and 80 meter dipole.

    Yes, he had great signal this morning. He heard me even though my Inverted L was wrapped around around tree branches after a long night of howling winds. The SWR circuitry tripped out before I could complete the contact. Will have to go home and fix that. I still lucky though. Nearly 100,000 CT residents lost power.

    Not much you can do when you have trees moving around in strong winds. I had 1/3 of a maple tree fall on my 20M dipole in 2011. And the power was out for more than a week.

    Yeah, Sandy same here no power for a week and I see your call in the image.

    I was amazed my dipole stayed up during Sandy and this same storm you are talking about, it stayed up also.

    The KH6 has no info on QSL'ing.

    Good antenna engineering on my part. :)

    AH7C was quite active last year on 160.. great sigs to the east coast and quick LoTW confirms. Congrats on the new one. I too could use Alaska.. I've seen a few decodes on FT8 from Alaska but haven't worked yet.

    Well, sent the QSL card to his address of record here on QRZ and the card was kicked back as not deliverable.

    The tag the USPO put on the card says "Insufficient Address, Unable to Forward".

    Don't know what else to do but toss the card, the station does not list and email address.

    Too bad.

    He posts here and other amateur forums.

    Perhaps you could start an argument.

    No, wait, send a private message.

    How do you send a PM?

    I've never done that here.

    Top right of page you'll see "inbox" where messages appear. Click on "inbox" then look for "start a conversation". After that, just enter his call and type your message - it will light up "red" as an alert in his "inbox" and likewise when he replies back to you
