XR0YG were very good on 30M this AM before my sunrise, working VK, NA, SA, and JA all in the same timeframe. They QRX'ed shortly after I started trying, so I went down to 40M and worked V73TS easy :-)

Last night's 17CW QSO already up on LoTW. Just a Marathon counter here, too. Just need them on 160 and that's it.

I got 'em on 20m so far.  I need it for 12, 15, 17, and 40.  I will wait a few days until the pile ups thin out a bit.

Once again..... amazed at pileups for Easter Island.
The island is active almost every year (at least as long as I have been active):
CE0Y/LA5UF - 2011
CE0Y/DK2ZF - 2010
XR0Y - 2009
CE0Y/K0HML - 2008
CC0Y - 2007
Needless to say, I dont needem.
I have quit working dupe entities unless its on 80m, which I need for 8BDXCC, but I suppose I should start paying attention to chasing 8BWAZ.......

There's also CE0Y/NL8F in 2012.  Tim gave me an ATNO last year.

They are working multiple continents with huge pile ups.  I tried 15m for almost an hour and no joy.  I will wait until they start calling CQ.

If you have nothing else to do why not work them?  The marathoners start at zero on Jan. 1st every year.

CE0Y/NL8F gave me the ATNO last year too. I will work them until I have Easter I. on every band and all three modes.  After that, I will no longer care to contribute to the chaos.  But I don't care to have all modes on all bands

It's really quite simple:  DXers like to work DXpeditions!  DXpeditions like to work DXers!

It would be pretty boring for the DXpedtioners if they only people that called them were 26 people/day that had never worked Easter Island before.   Smiley

Well, I guess we all do DX differently. When I started DXing in March of 2006, there were always NEW ONE for me, even at the bottom of the cycle. SFI of 80 was a GOOD day. Now that I am at 309/311, there are obviously not many ATNOS around for me. My interest has pretty much gone away as well, unless there is something new. Just not in the mood to work those "same old entities".  I cant be the only person that feels this way, but whatever.... Cheesy
 
I have not had the rig on here since March 15th, and I only worked FK8DD then.  I did not need New Caledonia, but its sorta an "exotic" location to me, and I will work some entities the second time around.  I have not worked DL, F, etc. etc. in probably over a year. Same with SA and the Carribean. Not that I dont like working EU, but just not exciting as working an ATNO.

I remember my very first JA QSO.  I  could not WAIT until I had the card in hand! Now my log is loaded with JAs.  I probably wont work one again. I did battle the pileups for Ogasawara and Minami Torishima however, and may try them again, as they are more of a challenge than a "plain" mainland JA.

Perhaps I am not really a hardcore DXer.. If I am not DXing for a reason (DXCC, WAZ, WAS, etc.) it does not really interest me. I have thought about the Challenge and/or the Marathon, but neither really grab my interest.

Every once in a while I decide I want to try to finish 80m DXCC, but I dont work on that every day, or even every week. I have to get in the mood, I guess. Huh

With the size of the pileups for relatively common stations, I can see that I am almost certainly in a minority. hi hi

I like working DX and eventually I would love to have 9BDXCC but, the guys that will work a entity over and over again don't make sense to me. I don't really care that they do, I just don't see the point.  If the pileups are crazy why contribute to the chaos  Roll Eyes

Might be nicer for those of us who do need them here in the Midwest stuck with a backyard dipole!  But that will never happen.  Especially enjoyable are those who call and connect multiple times on the same band during the same DXpedition just to show how "professional" they are.
