The once wonderful vanityhq.com, which had many wonders and marvels for ham operators, shut down a while back.
Now the domain has transferred to a Japanese registrar, and the page is mostly empty.
A moment of silence for its passing, please.
Thanks to the W1AW portable operations, I am at 147 confirmed WAS contacts for Triple Play, missing only Indiana in digital mode and Maine and Mississippi in phone mode. I collected the CW WAS a few days back.
For a new experience, I tuned 50.276 MHz and worked JT65 on six meters for the 1st time. The band was open, and in two sessions about a week apart, I added 10 new grids confirmed in LOTW to get me to 91 in the VUCC. I like JT65 for grid chasing, it’s really like shooting grids in a barrel – just watch for one you need and go for it.
Next time I post, I may have 4 new certificates on the wall.
