    Yup. I have some holes to fill for my 10 & 15 meter WAS, so I’m looking forward to those two weekends, along with ARRL 10 Meter in December. Sure would be nice to finish off, though most of what I need is relatively close... primarily in the zone between ground wave and sky wave on each band. Still, you never know... I was once told that I would “never” work DE on 20 (my last state on the band) for the same reason, 2 days later nabbed W1AW/3 589 on 20 CW late in the afternoon. Stranger things!

    Congratulations! That is quite the achievement to do it with homebrew gear!

    CQ WW DX SSB is coming up, last weekend in October. (CW is last weekend in November)

    I can all but guarantee that stations from both states WILL be on during the contest, and many of them WILL be on 80 meters.

    It CAN be done!

    As mentioned, with CQ WW events coming, you could get your chance.

    Here in the Seattle area, AK and HI are pretty much a "big yawn" as we hear them all the time on all the bands (as they are open of course).

    But I'll never forget working my very first HI station as a Novice (WN7AWK) on 40m CW late one night - still remember the call sign and have his card - KH6ISA (now a SK).... wasn't an "official printed QSL" but rather a sticker on a postcard showing the old royal palace in Honolulu - but it may as well been made of solid gold as far as I was concerned!! My very first "DX".... what a thrill ham radio was back then (1974) with no internet - it was all just ....

    ...magic

    The sunrise gray line opening is a great time to work Hawaii. I once worked three Hawaiian stations on 160M in ten minutes!
