Dave W4KA just completed his Challenge on his day 69 and is the 7th finisher. Dave's beam had a burnt balun and he had to make do with wire antennas.
Bas PE4BAS made a yeoman's effort at the CQ WPX SSB and managed to get 23 additional DXCC using SSB 5 watts on his FT817. This is truly a remarkable effort. At the end of the contest he was at 99 DXCC in 77 days. He just got his 100th DXCC on 3/29 with his contact to San Marino T77C.
