I've been fascinated with the "lore" of the DXCC program. The more I tried to shoe horn the program and its entity list into a perfect logical set of rules, the more I got frustrated. I even whined about this entity or that entity.
Then I realized that that is exactly what drives me to keep working towards Honor Roll and Hr #1 - its the imperfection in the program - and the lore and controversy that keeps things exciting. That and what I learn along the way - especially propagation and antenna wise - this is what keeps me motivated.
I have started a blog - and will feature Kingman Reef first, but here is the Introductory article:http://dxccsleuth.wordpress.com/2012/07/21/the-dxcc-sleuth/
I have found some people who are going to help me - OOT's and OT's who have been around and active in the program and who can tell me some really great stories about why one entity is on the list or another that is not - and the back stories behind all of this.
Let me know what you think . . .
