I would like to publicly offer my congratulations to Rob on this outstanding achievement. Not only did he do this, but we had a huge tropospheric ducting opening about two weeks ago, and he even found the time for a QSO on the 2 meter band (we're about 100 miles apart, hi).
Job very done, Rob

Well like I said yesterday, the Calender switching over to October was like someone flipping a switch to turn the DX on!! My quest to Log 500 Stations on a BAREFOOT Ultralight Radio has been accomplished, and the Drive to # 500 ended with a NEW COUNTRY ....Bahamas , which is also COUNTRY # 10 on Ultralight Radio!! Number 499 was also a Foreign Station ...Radio Reloj from CUBA on 670 Khz.
The Breakdown for the 500 stations heard is as follows......
468 Domestic Stations 32 Foreign Stations 10 Countries 34 States 5 Provinces
and 2 AeroBeacons ....which are NOT COUNTED in the Totals.
Total time to log the 500 stations was.........275 DAYS.
