I was mostly focusing on New DX this season to pickup the ones I'd been missing out in the mid-west.  I haven't had this many new ones in a single season probably since 2003 (F2).  I wasn't really trying for States or FFMA grids until late in the season as the EU paths started to shut down.

All of this with a 7 EL LFA antenna up about 20 feet (if that) hanging in a dense tree forest, using about 1kw.  My RX was an SDRPlay "RSP2pro", and my TX was a FTDX-5000.
