As I try to catch up on my websites, I have to post about getting my WAC award. I should have been able to complete this achievement about 6 months prior but a DXpedition made me wait to finally confirm our communication because I would not send them about $50. So in my first four months of operation, I managed to contact someone on all 6 inhabited continents. Antarctica does not count towards the award due to its special circumstances.
I’m sure I still have much to learn, and can probably continue to tweak my equipment to get it set better but I can talk around the world already, which is certainly a good sign.
