Subject: Alaska JD/ Counties

Message: A couple days ago I spotted some KL7 stations on FT8. One of them I wasn't sure of the JD so spotted with ? after district (which I had guessed incorrectly) Terry WQ7A pointed out my wrong guess and sent me a link that will be very helpful for CHers. WWW.qsl.net/kl7j/county.html has the JD broken down to indicate what Alaska really uses in place of counties now a days. This system was just being formed when I worked in AK 40 years ago. Link also gives the history of why Alaska has no "counties" BTW there is quite a bit of KL7 activity on FT8, all bands. Washington state has always been considered the gateway into Alaska radio wise so I may be copying KL7 when others can't . I do it on marginal antennas, either EFW or Cobb Webb, both at 20 ft.
