The International Grid Chase continues. I’ve managed to put in a few hours each day of the new year to get on the air. I’ve probably had about 20 QSOs a day, and somewhere around half of them have confirmed in LotW (international stations are notoriously bad about confirming in LotW). For the moment at least, I’ve managed to crawl my way up to the #1 spot in RI, and 973 out of 15,000+ globally. Several of the other RI fellas are quite active and will probably reclaim the lead soon.
A side benefit of grid chasing has been a small uptick in my DXCC Challenge band-point count, and three new states on 160-meters.
