I added to a previous thread, but I was so elated, I couldn't help myself.

http://www.eham.net/ehamforum/smf/index.php/topic,86683.135.html

My first QSO with them was 12/3/12 at 03:06Z on 30M.
Subsequently I have gotten them on 20 CW & SSB and 15M CW.
They have been pretty loud on many occasions.
This is my 331st entity.
My next submission to ARRL will qualify me for DXCC Honor Roll.
These are the last 9 outstanding DXCC countries for me:
BS7, BV9P, E3, FR-T, FT8Z, P5, VK9-X, VP8-S and XZ.

CONGRATS!  This was my #330 - so I can imagine how you feel - fantastic achievement!

I need 3Y0/B, E3, FR/G, FR/T, FT5Z, KH5K, KP1, SV/A, VK0/H and VP8/S to get to #1, and I know that two of these will be activated between now and February 2014.

I'm taking bets on which one will get me to #331 - hi hi

Congrats Rick!

Honor Roll is an amazing achievement when you consider all the entities on the list - not to mention how propagation changes the game every 11 years. And....

....that's quite a list remaining.  Grin

Nice job, Rick!  ZL9 was 307 for me.  I count myself blessed that I worked KP1 way back in 1981.  But I still need the same ones everybody else does...the cold-weather uninhabited rocks covered in bird guana, and the police states ruled by pot-bellied dictators (P5).  And an infrequently active entity (Iran, Laos, Macau, Spratly, Minami Torishima).  I hope I live long enough to get to honor roll.  At 48, a lot has changed since I became a ham in 1977.  Hopefully the next 30 years will get me there!  We need a better sunspot cycle peak in 2024!
