This past weekend was the PSKFEST contest. I decided to see how many states I could work that I haven't worked before. So when all was said and done, I worked 23 new states! The way I did this was simple: I called CQ on different parts of the waterfall. If I stayed in one spot, I only seemed to get a few contacts, and then none at all. But as soon as I switched to a different part of the waterfall, I'd get more contacts and a new state or two. I only made 44 contacts total, but that's pretty good for me since I didn't spend more than 3 hours on the contest.
