President KF5EJX and rusty sidekick K5WW contacted several new countries in the CQ WW WPX SSB contest a few weeks ago. And the fruits of all that hard work are starting to roll in!
First of all: thanks to the power of the Logbook of The World soon after the contest we got several new countries confirmed:
As you know we already had quite a few; but this latest contest added a whole lot of them in SSB. And 10 meters was in such fantastic shape that one single contest actually produced more countries on it than all other contests combined!
But we also received a few new paper QSL cards! One of those came straight from the (US) Virgin Islands.
The second one came out of North Dakota, with a little bit of a detour through Houston:
And with that we have our 50th state confirmed on 20 meters!
And look: now we even have all 50 states confirmed on 5 bands, and almost in SSB! So many awards, so little time 😉
Thanks to everyone for your help!
