    I've been a ham 51 years and Worked All States many times over. When I lived in New York State, I had 47 states worked and 40+ confirmed in less than a year, all 40 CW, with a 40 watt (DC input) transmitter.....then I moved back to PA. Because of the 50 mile rule, had to start all over again.

    But.....I never got the certificate.....until now. Job isn't finished till the paperwork is done.

    So I checked LoTW and applied. All 80/40/20 CW, with the Southgate Type 7 and homebrew trap inverted V.

    Nice work, Jim.

    I have 279 confirmed DXCC entities Mixed.
    I have only 43 confirmed states Mixed.

    Does that mean my antenna is a little hot?

    When I got WAS finally two years ago I didn't post it here, nor did I post DXCC for 10 meters.
    I try to wait until I do something worthwhile in ham radio like some of my videos. If I worked 300+ countries that would be worthwhile or I built something like a transmitter etc.
