Re: 500 at last
Congratulations on logging 1650-CJRS on your E100 with the Tecsun 9" loop, and finally receiving station #500! That is an amazing accomplishment from Northern Ireland, especially when you split up your DXing time with the FM band, and set all-time new FM-DXing distance records :-)
You certainly have great patience in chasing DX primarily with barefoot Ultralights, and only occasionally with external antenna help. The opposite is the case here, where lack of patience has resulted in some legendary AM-DXing loops (perhaps resulting in the neighbor's lack of patience?).
As Rob has mentioned, we would be only too thrilled to award you for your fine DXing accomplishments, if you are so inclined. Great job, and good luck on chasing the next hundred!
