Thanks everyone! I’m so happy to have been able to complete this milestone. As we all know SOTA only works because there are Activators and Chasers, so thanks to you all for making this happen for me.
I spent a good day out in WV yesterday and my friend Mark NK8Q came along to enjoy the fun and boost his points also. Due to the influence of Brad WA2MM, I managed to hold my log to 100% uniques for MG and get into CW recently (which I think made a lot of this possible in the last couple of months)

Not sure if I’m the first NA MG that’s a European, any one know of any others??

Thanks again!

Richard // N2GBR

ps… only downside from yesterday was I struck a deer on the way home in WV and it bust my headlight… BMW 5series… ouch! that’s going to be $$$$ :frowning:

Nicely done Richard! Way to hang in there doing 100% unique activation’s. I know from personal experience that goal starts out easy and gets tougher over time ;-). Your CW skills will definitely pay off as the sunspot cycle and propagation degrade these next several years.

Congrats on a job well done my friend!
