I'm coordinating the Nebraska activation of W1AW/0 during the ARRL Centennial QSO Party. SEND ALL QSLs DIRECTLY TO THE ARRL! Only they have cards to send replies. The results for Nebrska's first week activation are at http://k0ha.com/w1aw/w1aw.htm
Additional information is on my web site at: http://k0ha.com/
The main picture shows my current antennas. On 6M it includes a M² 6M7 plus two homebrew Yagi's that I call 6M6HA's, and one 6M7JHV which was converted to a 6M7HA. It has marginally better gain and directivity that the 6M7JHV, but more importantly, it has a significantly higher impedance. All four can be phased together via a home brew power divider. I added the ability to phase the Yagi's together with a 90 and 180 degree phase difference (besides the normal 0 degree phasing). This has proven helpful in eliminating elevation nulls and improving signals from many stateside stations as well as with some of the DX stations. My HF antennas and 40/80 meter verticals are also shown. The towers are shunt loaded on 160M.

SKEDS -- I have helped a lot of people add Nebraska towards their WAS goal as shown by over 65,500 LoTW QSL records, countless actual cards, and over 224,000 LoTW QSO records. However, I prefer to not do that via skeds. To me it shifts a radio operating award into being more of a clerical one, achieving a Scheduled All States award instead.I look forward to working you on a more informal basis.
