And now for the "Final Mile" as far as Mixed Honor Roll goes. I need these entities to work them all, and need just one more for Mixed Honor Roll. Which one of these do you think will put me on the Mixed Honor Roll, and when?

3Y0/B, E3, FR/G, FR/T, FT5Z, KH5K, KP1, SV/A, VK0/H, VP8/S

In 2012, 4 of the 6 that I worked for ATNO's were unannounced - and all were in what I call rare or even very rare. Only HK0NA and ZL9HR were announced ahead of time. EP, Z81, E40 and 7O had less than a month announcement before I worked them.

While I wait - I am modeling all kinds of new antenna ideas. And working some low band fun . . .

Rich, I'm betting it will be SV/A, just because Monk Apollo is active from time to time, and the rest of the places require expeditions that don't seem likely to happen in the near future.

However, KP1 would seem to be the next most likely possibility, since it is so close.

Good luck & 73,

I doubt it will be SV2ASP/A.  Even when he is active, his feeble signal and operating style do not lend themselves to a contact with the West Coast.

My bet is on VK0/H Heard Island.  I don't see any of the others on the horizon
and there is a planned Heard Island DXpedition in Jan 2014.

You know - ever since that post I keep thinking that we will see an announcement in 2013 for a real 3Y0/B activation. And then no one will believe it.  And its start date will be April 1, 2013. Grin

Heh heh...

This is what I guessed from the previous thread...And your comment now makes me even more inclined.

Plans for new DXpedition not yet announced...

Maybe it's not Monk. But, I'm guessing involves similar ferry boat ride...

I saw the slide show from the Intrepid group...

Good luck, I hope it all works out. 

Not ATNO for me, but it will make a lot of folks very happy.  I'd rather see Navassa or Iran or Myanmar, but I can be patient.

I doubt there would be any activity out of Iran
with that nut-job MockMood Ama-jimmy-jam in power.
He is only interested in world-wide destruction.

Navassa would be nice, but seems the US gov't is just as crazy
as Amajimmyjam.

There is activity almost every week from Iran.  But it's local ops with low power and small antenna.  It's very hard to work these guys over the EU pileups from east coast NA.

I have never heard Iran.
Not one peep.

I stand corrected though.

(Amajimmyjam is still a nut-job !)

Bad part on my end...

I worked Monk Apollo on RTTY about a year ago but
can't get a card. I have sent 2 requests.
One with US currency and one with IRC.
No reply.

Makes me wonder if it was "SLIM" Apollo Huh??

I suspect it probably was. I've never had a problem getting a card from Monk Apollo. I use $2 and invariably my card arrives within a month or so. I have Mt. Athos from 10 to 40m, all three modes, and each confirmed within 6 weeks, tops, of my request going out.

I have one in my log, EP2FA. No info on how to QSL though. That and TU2CI seem to be the only "hopeless cases" in my log.
