QSOs must, of course, be completed before January 1st. While I can't find it again, I thought I read that applications for the award would be accepted through February.

I'm at 103 and hope to add a couple more. It's been fun to track my progress and learn a bit about DXCC history.

I'm at 109 or 110, don't exactly remember.

Since it is a one year long program, and the certificates are
NOT numbered (Like the ARRL Triple Play is/was) I will submit
my application later in the year (like December)
Would like to get to 125, but I REALLY doubt I'll get there.

Got off my butt and submitted my application this afternoon.
Ended up at 129.

2 hours AFTER I submitted the app, I finally snagged
a T8 Palau on JT-65.
Figures, it couldn't have been BEFORE I sent in the app.

This has been a lot of fun chasing these DXCC entities around.  I'm not a big certificate fan but I do enjoy the chase.  Could someone please tell me if this is a yearly thing or just for a anniversary affair?  I don't remember reading anything relating to the question.

Finally hit 150 a day or two ago! I was lingering at 149 for a while. Kept missing some "easy" ones by hours for the last few weeks. I may try to hit 151 if I can but I'm happy with what I got.

I had hoped for 200, but around the middle of December it became clear that was not going to happen.

The other day I worked Gdansk for #191. I saw Botswana spotted but I was too late.  It's possible I pick up 1 more in the 3 days left but my total will be 191 or possibly 192.

This was a fun event.  Did anybody work Manchukuo?

BG2AUE in Manchuko was #202.  Great way to get back into DXing after many years!

I'll probably end at 200. Not too bad for barefoot operation and a small hexbeam, I guess. Should have been 201, but NH8S was refused (got word from ARRL that it was ok for American Samoa, but overruled later). Iran (EP3SMH) is quite active the last few days, which could still be a new one. It was very enjoyable chasing the bands, and very informative getting to know how the political world looked like in 1937.
73 and a happy newyear, Peter PB1TT.

On 15M CW 6 weeks ago.  He has a somewhat regular schedule based on DX cluster spots--he now  gets on 40.  I've been mostly on 40M myself, as I've been working the last few I need for DXCC on that band. I worked SV9, C31, T77, and EA6 last night--not rare, but they count all the same.  Grin

I saw a bunch of recent spots for him on 40/80 meters and thought you had a stealth vertical for 40 so that is why I was curious. 

A station from the Philippines was S9 a little while ago on 40 Phone but there were a group of friends running the group and he did not hear my one call. From the sound of it I think all were running beams.  On CW I think I would've landed him which would've made my first DU on 40 meters.
