In 2012 I got EY8MM for Tajikstan for my first Stan on 80M.

Tonight I got UN9L for Kazakhstan.

Remaining for 80M WAS (Worked All Stans): Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, and of course the unworkable Turkmenistan.

I don't think TriSTAN Da Cunha counts as credit for Worked All Stans but I could be corrected.

Tim,

Congrats! Best of luck with your Work All Stans award, LOL.  Grin

Based on your DX cluster spot, you worked UN9L on 3508.9 at 0353z. His local time (UTC + 6) was just 7 minutes before 10am! VA2WA spotted him the day before also on 160m about 30 minutes earlier as "CQ DX gd signal".

Yes, my calculation efforts puts the QSO about 30 minutes after his sunrise.

I've been having very good success this winter working 80M to northerly Scandinavia at roughly their local noontime :-). And for "just plain northern Europe" like OZ, ON, and southern parts of Scandinavia, some really big enhancements in the half hour after their sunrise.

And of course the money shot:

Also last night on 80M, I was trying for EK7DX. He worked at least one NA station (but not me).

I got EK/RZ3DJ in March 2017 for DXCC, but since I do 80M Marathon points each year, I have to start over again last week :-)

Getting a QSL from those places can be tricky you were lucky to find one who does LOTW,

I'm trying to tidy up my DXCC for 160 and I have had no luck getting cards from a few of the Stans and there neighbors,

I can only dream of working a STAN on 80m.  I don't even bother when one is spotted.  Being in Colorado I have challenges going into Eastern EU and the Middle East.  My furthest 80m contact going East is A4.  On the other hand going West towards Asia is very easy from here.  I have the following confirmed on 80m, 3W, 4W, 4S, HS, XX9, VK9/X, VK9/C, plus all of the common Asian entities like VR, BY, BU, HL, YB, 9M6, etc.  Just wondering, is it difficult for New England to work Asia excluding JA on 80m?  What's your furthest contact going West?

Jonathan, East... I have tons of EU, AF, middle east, etc. West... it's kind of bleak. Clipperton, Kermadec, Lord Howe Island, Australia, Marquesas, New Zealand, Pitcairn, a few other islands in the pacific.. but nothing in the Asian continental far east (yet). Just a 102 foot dipole for 80m.. that's all I can squeeze in.

That's nothing! We even have SCARBOROUGH here about 20 minutes drive from my place if someone needs it! LOL  Grin
