USA (NX7TT): The fourth country confirmed with the PRC-320

I have just received the eQSL from the US, which represents my fourth validly confirmed country on eQSL with the PRC-320. The qso was on the 20m band with NX7TT from Rigby, Idaho.
Rigby is most famous for being the "birthplace of television", a title the city can attribute to a high school student named Philo Taylor Farnsworth. Farnsworth drew up his first blue-prints of a television while he was a Jefferson County resident. Later he invented the vacuum tube television display. Original tubes from Farnsworth's early experiments were on display at the Rigby High School for many years. They are now held by the Jefferson County Museum in Rigby. A section of the Yellowstone highway, passing through the community, has been named in Farnsworth's honor.
NX7TT is retired from the USAF after 23 years. He did 43 countries with Uncle Sam, and you can see some of the calls he has had (AH2BE, AH2BE/KH9/KH6, KB6DAW/KH2/KH9/KH6, HL9MM, 8P9GI, HZ1AB...)
