Confirmed 8 out of 8 Connecticut County Contacts

I have been slowly accumulating United States County contacts toward the United States Counties Award.  This is a rather ambitious award (at least for me) as there are 3007 US Counties.  It certainly takes patience to work and confirm contacts with them all.  As with any challenging journey, it is important to stop and smell the roses when they appear.

I recently confirmed my last Connecticut County (8 out of 8) with a 10m FT8 contact with KG5TA (Gregory) located in Windham County, CT.  That brings my total number of States completed toward the United States Counties Award to four.  Just 46 more US States to go! :-)
  1. Fairfield County ✓
  2. Hartford County ✓
  3. Litchfield County ✓
  4. Middlesex County ✓
  5. New Haven County ✓
  6. New London County ✓
  7. Tolland County ✓
  8. Windham County ✓

Are you collecting US County contacts?  If yes, what is your strategy?  Do you happen to know someone who has successfully completed this award?  How did they go about it?  Please leave a comment.  Would love to hear from you.
