I reviewed my 2015 ARRL CW DX LCR. I operated from the waterfront overlooking Sarasota Bay in Florida, while most of the rest of you were freezing you back ends off up north.


Of my 592 QRP QSOs, 27 people busted my QTH. 17 of these had me back in Ohio. Five had me in places ending in "L" - IL (4), and AL (1). 3 had other 8-land states, and one each in LA and MA.

Of the 12 who busted my call, 9 did have me in FL. 3 people double busted me - in IA, OH, and WV.

The unsurprising moral: copy the guy!

Back in Florida when it starts getting cold again.

AT least the
number is smaller than last year.  I think it was about 20
