Getting Ready for a Year of DX in 2020

I had taken a hiatus from DX chasing for about a year.   Hearing 4U1UN brought the juices flowing and a hankering for making DX contacts.  ND7J, trying to revive the SCDXA group, issued a challenge for a race toward DXCC.   First he had to figure out a classification formula.  With input from me, he came up with 5 watts and 100 watts.   The 5W class will have no antenna restrictions.  The 100W class will be limited to simple wire antennas - no arrays or wire beams or Yagis of any kind.  That should level the playing field somewhat.   I seem to be the only one to have entered the QRP category.

Entrants so far
KD4S, K9JDP, ND7J, NY4G, W4NGU, N4IQ
