I was looking through my LoTW records and noticed that I don't have Northern Ireland on 160-20.  Is it just dumb luck or is there something more to it?

Two LoTW QSLs each on 80 and 20 meters in the past year--still need them on 40/30 meters.
I spent a lot of time on 80 in the past few months to get my 5BDXCC.  Now up to 83 countries on 30M.

I have GI on all bands 80-10. Check contests! I don't know about SSB but the CQWWCW, CQWPXCW, and the ARRLDXCW contests are good places to look for GI on 20, 40, and 80 meters. Also the IOTA contest - since GI and EI are EU-115.

GI confirmed 6 through 160, all three modes, with many QSOs on each band. Best bet for 160 and 80 is GI0KOW, but I also worked GI0RQK on Topband in February this year.

GI5K is who I confirmed on 80 via LoTW. I don't have them on 160 yet.

Must be dumb luck then. Who knows... I am glad to see that they are out there, I just need to have my butt in the chair when they are on.

80 and Topband were contest QSOs. 6-40 were both contest and normal.

I look in my LOTW credits, and I have GI4DOH on 160M and 80M, GI0RQK on 40M, GI0KOW on 80M, and lots of different ones on 20M. Almost all of these are from contests (especially ARRL DX).

I worked GI3OQR back in 1962 (on 20m), then worked him fifty years later on Top Band.

Hmmm....  Just noticed I don't have GI on 40M or 30M.  Gotta fix that.

There are several MI3 and MI0 stations active on 40m.

GN4FOC just confirmed 40 and 30 via LoTW--so I now have Northern Ireland on all Challenge bands except 160 and 6M.

Yep, I got 20m, 30m, and 40m confirmed. Now I just have to wait for 80m and 160m. I've worked all around it on both bands, so I am hopeful that I will be able to get this taken care of this winter.

Hmmm... Just checked and I still need GI on 40 and 30.  Gotta fix that.

Listen in on 3.799mhz at night.  EI6S and a couple of G operators run somewhat of a DX roundtable there and will have stations check in from GI at times.  That is how I got mine on 80. I believe it was GI0KOW
