I checked Logbook of the World a moment ago and realized I was closer to achieving the Worked All States basic award than I thought.
According to LOTW, I have 13 contacts left. Cross-checking with my log, I’ve actually worked seven of those remaining contacts, but there hasn’t been an online confirmation for them yet. Seeing as how all of those unconfirmed contacts were from QSO parties, digital mode contacts, or special event stations, it boggles my mind that they wouldn’t be on LOTW.
Anyway, here’s what’s left, unofficially:
Oregon West Virginia
I know Alaska and Hawaii will be difficult to grab. I’ve heard both states before, but they were way down in the noise and they get hammered like rare DX when they do show up. I can’t believe I’ve never had a QSO with Nevada!
