There are maps in the book I call my ham bible, the ARRL Operating Manual
(for operating, as opposed to technical, information, it beats the Handbook
all to hell, IMHO).  The league web page, under contests, under IARU
Championship, has two world maps (b/w and color) and textual descriptions of
the zones for W/VE.  I only glanced at it (I know I'm in 8) but I recall
that some states were split, and I think WI was one of them.  Any, check
that page; it's a gold mine.

And nice to work you -- twice.  I don't remember what zone you signed, but
they were the same both times or I would have noticed the discrepancy in CT

I predict it will be K6W; he was one of only two that moved
me from 20 to 15 to 10 and set up a sked for 40 several hours
later.  Unfortunately,  never heard him in the race on 40 during
the last hour,  so missed that one.  Only one other station
moved me from 15 to 10;  but never heard him on 20 or 40.

Congratulations to all involved, a great success.  I sure would like to
thank everyone for providing me with a great 18 hours of CW, what a blast.
The rate meter was at its lowest level ever, but the pleasure was just great.

Looking forward to hearing all about the scores and who the operators were etc.

Best hunting trip I've ever been on

clean sweep on 20, 41 on 40 with 1/4w sloper, no 10 or 15 operations.

73 and thanks for a great event  Pete N4KW
