I only dabbled in the CW WPX this past weekend looking for new countries. I was thrilled to work V62T Saturday morning on 20 meters ( 14.004 ) as Micronesia is a ATNO.

Since I have not been successful in finding Qsl information through all the available databases. I have searched also the various club newsletters. Nothing found !  I did confirm that V62T was listed on the spotting networks Sunday morning at about the same time.

I also have found that several Japanese hams have activated V6  ( v6t ) in past years. Either  SLIM was having some fun or the operator of V62T has managed to stay under everyone's radar.

Any suggestions from this august group ?

Thanks and 73,
Hank

Yea I don't think Micronesia was on during the contest.  


Operations rarely stay under the radar

That's why a subscription to the Daily DX is quite worthwhile, as well as the other weekly bulletins. You'll often get a heads-up as to when something rare or semi-rare is coming up. It's unlikely that HV would be on without some obvious announcements that they're QRV. Also, knowing the more commonly-used calls from the Vatican help, too.

Not saying it helps everywhere, every time, but situational awareness is important!
