I'm not too far away from you in EM34, and I got WAS completed in about 8
months of pretty hard operating. I had to set a few schedules, and catch a
few portable operators at the right time - but those of us in the
south-central part of the county are in a pretty good spot for WAS. It's
definitely doable on the LEO's in short order, if you operate pretty
heavily for a while.
