    Even at top of the last cycle I couldn't get WAS from my home in Oregon. DX wasn't an issue and I came close to DXCC on 10m but WAS wasn't to be had. Once I moved to Tennessee I was able to get WAS in just over a year, those north eastern states from Oregon seemed impossible. I looked into getting certificates from the AARL but decided after seeing the costs (even with LOTW) it wasn't worth it to me. I'm happy enough to just apply here for the badges on both my previous callsign and my current call sign. Hopefully in the coming years when the cycle improves I'll get SSB DXCC from Tennessee.

    For me, the easiest way to get "rare" states was to get into the ARRL November Sweepstakes (SS). Lots of stations all over the USA are on the air, and most of them upload to LOTW.

    What is "the AARL"?

    Nice. I got all my DXCC contacts in NJ in the mid-90s. 4 QTHs later, in 2013, I had a card counter come to my house in SC and count the DXCC credits. Some of the countries no longer existed (LOL), but they counted for the time the QSO was logged, and I got my DXCC award almost 20 years after getting all the confirmations. It's the only 'paper card' DXCC award I have, and it is dear to my heart because it was earned the old fashioned way. :)

    Congratulations.
