Busted

My very good fortune of working K6JSS stations in the various states looks like it has come to an end.  As I write this, there remains only about 25 minutes of time before K6JSS/5 becomes K6JSS/8 and moves on to Michigan.

20 Meters just didn't work for me, I am sorry to say.  I tried several evenings, but my signal was too weak to be heard - trying with both the EDZ and the Butternut.  I must have been "Receiver Y" in the dreaded "Skip Zone" and the radio waves were just flying too far above my antenna to be captured.

Oh well, it was a good run and I am happy with what I have accomplished so far.  I knew that it would be tough working all 50 going into this.  I thought the stumbler would be either Hawaii or Alaska, though.  Much to my delight K6JSS/6 from Hawaii has been confirmed for me through my logbook on QRZ.com. Alaska will remain to be seen.

Kudos to all of you out there who are fortunate to still have your streaks unbroken.  Here's to working all the rest! (Glass held high!)

PS: Wow!  Worked two K6JSS/8 stations within the first 20 minutes of Michigan's start for the week.  Hank N8XX on 30 Meters and Ken WA8REI on 40 Meters.  Superb operators both.  Thanks, guys!
