Two weeks ago or thereabouts was the worldwide DX contest - 2/19 and 2/20. I was able to add 30 new DX entities while working 82 DX stations.
I got Hawaii twice. Once was on 40m QRP and the other time was on 15m QRO.
I have not had too much HF operation of late. I have not even started building the K2. I built a work table on which to build the K2 on. The table is finished and now it is just the time commitment that is necessary.
