A tough one this month due to the zeroes and that W. Zeroes always seem hard in EU calls, and I was stuck needing four zeroes for a few days, then when I finally worked them thanks to IK0FUX and special Slovenian call S503EO, it took a couple more days to work SP2LNW to get the elusive W and finish the challenge here just past 0000Z on May 11. I always enjoy completing the challenge, but then I am sad that it is over since it was so much fun chasing the letters and numbers. Thanks Matt and Ton. You’re doing a lot to help the NAQCC pursue its goal of promoting CW use on the ham bands with these challenges and other EU Chapter activities as well.
