    I'm at 36 now, after 5 years of QRP operating with only an 80 meter doublet. IMO, WAZ is a better indicator of one's DX capability - especially QRP and with low band condx - it's just hard to get those last few zones on the opposite side of the earth! Obviously, a better antenna would help.

    36 here as well, been at qrp for 3 years or so but strictly ssb @3 watts.
    6, 12, 23 and 27 still needed. Hard to explain why #12 and 23 elude me.

    To me WAZ is the pinnacle, the #1 award. I have 4 of them as ON6KE, all 4 of them made with 100 Watt or less and 1 or 2 low (25-30 feet) dipoles.
    As ON7QRP I'm stuck at 28 now but haven't been chasing too much lately.

    6 is always a nasty one for Western Europe and for me zone 27 too. I only need zone 27 to make WAZ Phone as ON6KE.
    Anyway back to QRP, 36 on SSB at 3 Watt, that is quite an achievement.

    Good luck guys on making them last 4.

    Your 135' doublet fed with 300 ohm window line at about 45', that is cool too William. I like QRP stories in which wire antenna's are used.
