Over the past 2 weeks (weekends), I have accumulated 216 QSOs, 110 grids and 5 countries on 6m FT8.  Now to get them confirmed and get my VUCC for 6m.

Congrats Marc. That made me lookup my VUCC, I need your grid, sadly only worked 47 grids (: but with the new QTH = new towers/beams growing in my antenna farm. Tower #1 72' will be HF but Tower #2 at 96' will have M2 18XXX and an M2 432-9WL, contemplating stacking the XXX's. Tower #3 48' TBD. Targeted to be installed end of June but likely mid-July.

Hmmm, good point Marc, it's less than 20km as the crow flies. LOTW verified, so if ARRL negates all previous confirmed contacts for a 12 miles move, then I'll cancel my membership and tell them why, after all it's just paper on the wall, I know what I've done. My integrity stands.
Opps my membership ran out just before Christmas.

Marc you triggered me to check on 2m VUCC too, so I created a new award definition in HRD I called 6m - 2m VUCC, so I can see 6m and 2m VUCC per band and mode. Though I'm shy yet on 2m I got 6m VUCC confirmed on SSB.

You gotta get some of those genetically modified aluminum/galvanized and copper seeds. You plan ahead and plant them in the fall just before the snow, the spring yields all kinds of magical things. Can't wait for the coax seeds as they are still in development.
