Guam, finally

I was tuning around 20m tonight (it's been nicely open in the late evening here) and tuned across KH2L. I figured I had Guam confirmed long ago from my Ohio QTH, but just to be sure, I checked, and no, I didn't! It only took two calls to put it in the logbook. So, one more down, maybe 30 to go for DXCC.

Oh, and if I didn't mention it before, the G5RV apex is at 58 feet now (I say "60 ft" or "20 meters" on the air, but what's 2 feet between friends?). Having the antenna 38 feet higher than the old antenna, plus not having an S9+ buzzsaw in the neighbor's garage really helps with the DX!
