Just keep on keeping on. The stuff is out there. Since I made the original post, I've completed my single-band DXCCs for 40m & RTTY (both at 115 now), and have over 200 on 10, 15, & 20; 179 on 17, and 170 on 12, and a Mixed total of 298. I ordered my DXCC Challenge award plaque this week, where I now stand 1229 total. I'm looking forward to the 300 endorsement and have a goal for the year of hitting 1500 Challenge points, though that will be quite a bit more work with the band conditions as they are.durangopipe wrote:CW Spook wrote:Keep at it. You'll get there, it just takes bit of time and it'll be well worth it in the end.
BTW, I just worked V73D in the Marshall Islands for my 86th country on RTTY, and this morning received my QSLs from E51MQT on the North Cook Islands for contacts on 80, 40, 30, 20, 17 & 12 meters. I just need 9 more countries confirmed for DXCC on 40...got all the higher bands finished.
Very Cool! Both of you.
CW Spook, you're way ahead of me . . .
I've been pretty low-key regarding DXCC for the past decade or so.
I'm at 200 confirmed, total. All bands. No DXCC on any one band, but I do have CW and Phone certificates.
198 officially with the ARRL--haven't sent in an update in a while. Confirmed 6V7F in Senegal on 20m and ZL8X on Kermadec (on 20m and 15m in 2010--I just realized looking at the card) since my last update. Should do it--that "200" sticker would be nice to have.
You're inspiring me!
