This throws a lot of whining into sharp perspective. They didn't work the U.S. enough? We're second only to JA. Totally impenetrable JA wall? JA was only 900 hams ahead of the U.S. total. Granted they had 3x the QSO's but who around here had a real shot on, say, 40m. BS7H impossible from

Mark: I ran the stats based on US zones. Yes, not all W7s live in 7 land, but I think as many 6s live in 4 land as 4s live in 6 land. No said the stats I posted were 100% accurate, but they are statistically accurate if not perfect. hey, this is a hobby... Don N1DG, BS7H webmaster At

Good comments Jose, I have no sour grapes. I didn't figure on working them but had fun trying. I made a couple of operating errors which may have cost me a chance but I learnt in the progress and I did get to work the slim on 30m hi hi Mark N1UK G3ZZM - Original Message - From:
