I have been back on the air after a long time being idle.

The Paper chase

Lately I have been working on a bunch of awards I should have gotten long ago. I finished my 5BWAS, and I have been working on getting confirmations for all states on those 5 bands on CW, Phone, and Data. Just finished my 5B-DXCC, with the hardest band being 80 meters.  Now on to the WARC bands! (WAS for 30 done).

Last year at Dayton, I picked up an Icom IC-706 Mk II G.  It's a nice little rig, and it gets me onto the WARC bands.  I just got it set up for digital, and I am very happy with the FSK from this rig.

One of my goals for this year was to get all 5 bands on phone, on CW, and on data.  Basically the ARRL triple play award on all five bands without the requirement for LoTW.  I will do that later.  I have finished phone and CW (although I have not gotten to the card checker yet for the paper QSLs.  I am still looking for JUST ONE CONTACT: DATA on 80 meters from Alaska!  

My total number of countries worked has just gotten to the point that I am counting down rather than up.  I now have (only) 83 available All Time New Ones to try for.  My current confirmed total stands at 262.
