    Well not specifically DX, but they are all run like mini-DXpeditions!
    SO far I have 100% worked that has been on. Missing a couple of modes for some but there is a 2nd chance to pick them up on the 2nd go around. Sure hafta keep on your toes and not GO out of town or U can miss a state!

    What I realized too late but NOT TOO LATE after all (TNX to the 2nd go around) is that this is the best shot at nabbing a 5BWAS! So far I can't seem to get the East Coasters to hear me on 80 though! 40 just barely. AK and HI will be chip shot from here. I so see some going for all bands and modes worked so they are thinking 5BWAS too (PLus WARC endorsements).

    this week NJ and NH is on. I finished off NJ in 20 minutes on all 3 modes but am short a DIgital for NH for a clean sweep of the trifecta.

    I got into it late so I'll have to catch the first couple months' worth when they come back around later in the year. I tried catching NJ last night; but, man, was he getting pounded! I don't try to get them in all the bands and modes. I just try to get 'em on two or three bands just do I can increase the odds that at least one will QSL me. I had a couple early on that I know I got and QSL'd me; but when they uploaded the logs I wasn't confirmed.

    Oh well, it's fun! :)

    I missed North Carolina and West Virginia, but I've got all the rest. I haven't got confirmation on a few, so I've been trying to get every state at least twice.

    I'm only after each state, any band. I'm not trying to get them on every band or every mode.

    YES!

    I haven't got every one but I've got quite a few. I just grab them when I come across them.:)

    I ran into 2 or 3 during contests. Other than that, I'm not really interested.

    Meh....

    Like others, I have worked them when I have run into them, but I don't chase awards so working every one of them in every mode has no appeal to me. Seems to be a OCD kinda pursuit! :p

    I work 'em as they come along - got a bunch already - I'd like to get my WAS and even though I've got all the "difficult" states confirmed from regular (non W1AW) QSO's - some of the easy ones like MS and TN - have not replied with QSL cards after months of waiting??? Should be easy pickings with the W1AW/XX ops though...

    Just signed up on the ARRL website to have the cards sent via bureau - has anyone rcvd a card this way yet?
