I made my 6M WAS #1306 without F2 conditions and without solar peak in a record time of just 33 month and only on sporadic E.My 6M standing without solar peak and F2 conditions as of, August 9th 2013, is as follow : 706 grid worked 676 confirmed - 94 DXCC 89 confirmed - 50 US states WAS #1306 completed after 33 month in June 18,2007.
