Amateur Radio Awards earned recently:

  • DXCC - Mixed.
    Although I have not yet applied for the specific endorsements, I have LOTW confirmations of 100+ on Phone, CW, & Digital, and have over 100+ confirmed on 40, 20, 17, 15, & 10 Meters.  I also have qualified for the DX Challenge award. I am waiting until I get past 100 on 80 Meters and will apply for all the endorsements when I apply for 5BDXCC.
     
  • WAS -  Mixed.
    I also have LOTW Confirmations for Triple Play, and have all 50 states confirmed on 6 bands - 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, & 15 meters.  My goal is to "run the table" with WAS on All bands, 160-6 Meters. 
    I only need AK on 160.  I need 8 more states on 10 Meters, 24 states on 12 Meters, and 12 states on 6 Meters.
     
  • I have placed First place in Indiana or 9th Call area in several contests, most often in the Single Operator, Low Power, Asisted category.  I may post a list later. Hopefully there will be more to come now that my new antenna is up and running.  My favorite contests are:
