Mostly I've been having a blast, bumping up my WARC bandfill numbers for DXCC Challenge counters. But a lot of ATNO's this year too, getting me up to 261 worked. Since the start of the year (cut and pasted from my clublog account; the "#" ranking is most-wanted; the most-wanted stats tend to be dominated by EU hams I think):

UJ   UZBEKISTAN   #127   2013-04-17
VK9C   COCOS (KEELING) ISLAND   #92   2013-04-08
JW   SVALBARD   #223   2013-03-28
9Q   DEM. REP. OF THE CONGO   #121   2013-03-24
V7   MARSHALL ISLANDS   #96   2013-03-10
XW   LAOS   #52   2013-03-10
XT   BURKINA FASO   #117   2013-02-21
H4   SOLOMON ISLANDS   #77   2013-02-21
9U   BURUNDI   #76   2013-02-15
3D2/R   ROTUMA   #62   2013-02-13
TZ   MALI   #108   2013-02-12
ZK3   TOKELAU ISLANDS   #45   2013-02-12

I would have worked the 9Q but as far as I know he is not valid for DXCC due to being undocumented.

Yeah, getting a legit 9Q ain't easy these days. I worked him a few times. I worked 9Q6CC for a 10m bandfull in WPX 2011 but never got a QSL back from the op (home QTH is in Uruguay, no manager, no bureau. No LoTW. Lovely).

For those of you not familiar with Clublog, the above data is generated by Clublog automatically.  Column three is the most wanted ranking on Clublog.  Column four is the first-worked date.  This feature is available under the DXCC Timeline, First Worked Dates.  You could also generate a list of DXCC's that you need in a format that you could cut and paste into an email or a forum post.  Clublog is a wonderful tool for analyzing and data mining your DX contacts.

You can check the rank of an entity using Clublog, and ranking on global, or by continent.
Lots of new ones for me last year.
This year just TZ6BB in January, for #307 confirmed. Fernando now has a triband beam up.
The only other possibility of a new one is if a DXer visits Mt Athos and works outside Europe.
Or a surprise activation we haven't heard about yet.
In the meantime, there's the CQ DX Marathon, Top Band and QRP scores.
Propagation now on the downslide, going into winter. A good time to build and repair stuff.

Nothing yet. Wake will probably be the first, with luck.

Yep, not a damned thing.

Amazing, at 309/311 that I cannot find an ATNO.  I need Pakistan and Iran, but have yet to work em. I see em spotted, but usually SSB, and I am not going there. I hear em (barely), but dont want to get in that shouting match.......
 These two may be my two which will never get worked. (Of course I thought the same thing about Mt. Athos, before working Monk Apollo on CW AND SSB Roll Eyes)

On a most amazing morning last fall, I got AP2IA (Pakistan) via RTTY on 12M, and I see some recent reversebeacon spots for him on 12M CW too.

Hehe.  Just for giggles I used Clublog to see how many ATNOs I worked in 2012.  I almost fell off of my chair when I saw the number - 101.  So I have worked a total of 120 ATNOs in the last 15 months Grin

2012 was a fun year with 16 confirmed ATNO's, bringing my mixed total to 258.

So far this year, only one - 5W0M on 10 and 17 CW.

This morning I heard YB0NFL and VR2XMT ssb on 17, but no joy.

Nothing so far this year.

 Wake Is later this year, along VU7 if Krish can make it there and I can manage a qso, would be 2 ATNO.

I'm hoping Paul's announcement in a couple of days is something I haven't worked, and hopefully this year.


I have picked up 7 new ones /m this year, putting me at 257 mobile.

That is awesome Tom for running mobile. I am only at 116 so there is a lot of ATNO's for me to pick up.

I've only been chasing DX for about 8 months since I put up a hexbeam, and have only been licensed 2+ years, so it's been a great year for me. With the Antarctica QSO I just finished, I'm at 103 ATNOs in 8 months, 35 ATNOs this year to bring me to 183 total worked. I worked 9 new ones last week - I doubt that will ever happen again.

I only have 3 ATNO this year:
EA9   CEUTA & MELILLA   #251   2013-04-07
SV5   DODECANESE   #220   2013-04-07
JX   JAN MAYEN   #95   2013-02-24
9U   BURUNDI   #76   2013-02-23

I applied for and was awarded my 250 DXCC endorsement in February. 234 are from LoTW and 16 are from cards and I still have 12 more cards to be checked. I have a total of 286 worked and I have done this since getting back on the air in 2003. Right now I am doing a bunch of band slots while waiting on ATNO's that I can hear. They are getting fewer and further between each one. But the hunt is the most fun.

You guy's that are just starting keep going they pile up quick at first and as you get more it gets more thrilling with each one you work.
Have fun

My last new one was PT0S last fall.
No new ones this year. Sitting at 295 QRP, 298 CW, 300 CW & SSB
Still some easy ones if I can find them.
