Good Info Dave, Thanks. 
  In Maine, one contest Weekend, about year 1999-2000  worked 103 countries. 
  Lots of countries in Europe not that far away in the Northeast direction.

       Success also depends a lot on your location. Working 119 DXCC from a 70'
inv vee from NY is a whole lot easier than doing it, for instance, out here
in the Midwest (Iowa). YMMV. . .73. . .Dave, W0FLS

I Have an inv V hanging off of my 70 foot tower. Because I live on a
suburb lot the legs of the antenna are bent to fit the lot (really ugly). I
have worked DXCC (119) with that minimal antenna. It can be done but you
have to be patient.
