Took a couple days to find that last 8 (DL8PG), or I would have been done on March 4. Another fun challenge, and this concludes a sweep of both the ‘USA’ and ‘EU’ NAQCC March challenges. Now what do I do for the rest of the month? HI. Thanks again Matt and Ton.

Interesting Challenge.  Getting the 0’s was the hardest part.  Thanks Ton and Matt.  72, Terry
