     Comments:  I worked this as a way to fill out my 160 WAS.  
     Thanks to NL7Z for AK, my final state.  I was
     very surprised, though, to have contacted as many stations as I did.  
     My antenna is a half wave dipole up at 15'.  Worked about everything
     I heard, including AH6M.  I did notice one benefit to having a long,
     low dipole.  The noise floor was very low.  On average, I enjoyed an
     S3 or less noise level.  A friend of mine 5 miles north of me battled 
     S8-S9 all weekend.  So now, I'll take down the 200 feet, or so, of wire 
     strung all around my house and roll it up until next month.  The 
     neighbors might actually miss it.  Nah.  They've never appreciated
     my sense of beauty and style.  And to me, wire is beautiful! 73
     I have observed all competition rules as well as all regulations for
     amateur radio in my country.  My report is correct and true to the
     best of my knowledge.  I agree to be bound by the decisions of the
     ARRL Awards Committee.
