Loren, I have been working the birds for 2 years and know how hard it can be to get certain states ( I still need New Mexico for the 48 states). You just caught me between radios (I shipped my Yaesu FT-726R last Friday and expect my new radio Kenwood TS-790 no earlier than next weekend). I will certainly help you get Maryland when I get it hooked up. If I'm too late to be the first, I would love another Oregon contact. I can also do a portable using a W32A and log-periodic antenna to Delaware (less than an hour away) if we set up a schedule.
