I know Rich(KY6R) had a topic on this in 2004. I thought of bringing that one up.I know Rich whould have got a chuckle out of it.
Just started to do the 2012 survey and noticed this and a few others that stick out.
I know EZ7ST goes to UA9LM and EZ8AQ went to another russian station. Sent a few times and no luck.Between the 2 I had 5 qso's. But 5 is like 0 if you have no card.
There should be somewhere to look at what stations you cant get a card from.
I mean geez.Its been 3 times I sent and qso's are from 1999 and 2003.
The other one that sticks with me is the so called Contest station of 9A1A. I see where they put my money.
Oh yeah - I remember how "elusive" EZ was, and how even more "elusive" it was to get the QSL.
The QSO was eerily easy - I caught him right as he came on the air and had no pileup whatsoever.
I'll have to do a DXCC Sleuth on Turkmenistan - it is one of the more "mysterious" entities for sure . . .
