County Hunting is one of many amateur radio activities. There are over a thousand hams who have worked all of the US counties. Some have done it several times. Those who have done it once enjoy doing it a second time or attempting to work them in some restricted manner, like all CW, all Mobile or all on one band. Your imagination is the limit as to what can be done. It has even been done QRP mobile.
I have worked all of the counties CW having finished them the first time in December 1996. I am currently working them a second time, again all CW. I am also working them QRP, although that is not getting in the way of getting them a second times. I have to keep the priorities straight. And finally in a weak moment I embarked on working them all QRPp. For those not familiar with the QRP world that means running under 1 Watt.
