But KA3NRX did get an ATNO with ZL9, I remember working you on 20 meters shortly before we went QRT.

78? Well if you put it that way.... ::)......My educated guess though, Bill, is that you have a bunch of the ones I need that are pretty common......(Monaco, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Bahrain, Iraq)???.....or perhaps I am speculating....anyway....I proabably have a bunch you need too......So much to contact, and not enough time.....frustrating, man!...... :o.....

Hey Vince, was it not you who gave birth to "ATNO"?  I think the first time I saw it, or noticed it, it was in one of your posts. If not, WHO claims this one??

BTW, I have all of those you asked Bill about.. hi  8)

I need all of the above except for Bahrain.

Asia is almost impossible for me.
Mostly local terrain difficulties.

I have HEARD China twice and VR2XMT in Honk Kong several times, but
never got thru.
Thats it !

I need to get out of this hole to hear Asia.

Look for BY4CD for China. I have worked them on 40 and 20 in the past 18 months with my minimalist setup.  They put out a really good signal.  Still waiting on the QSL, though via bureau.  Did catch BV1KE on 40m RTTY in the RTTY RU a couple of weeks ago. A new RTTY country but not a new band country.  Bahrain is on quite a bit nowadays.  Worked one last fall or so on 10m SSB for a new band country.  All this done with 100 watts and a dipole from the black hole of the midwest.

YI1RZ, Razi, is very active from Baghdad. He's not the strongest signal on the band but he works CW and some digital modes. BX5AA is active from Taiwan. A92GE and A92IO are both active from Bahrain, although I have not worked A92GE or heard him for awhile now. A92IO was heard the other day. All use LoTW.

As Chris said Dave A92IO is very active from Bahrain and allways puts out a good signal,

He won't be there for ever so make it your buisness to find him on he bands,

Very fast uploads to LOTW as well,

Have pursued all of the above to no avail for one reason or another....Every time I have seen them spotted, I can't hear them, or the Pile is too GD big, or both.....I remember back in 2008 hearing the Beijing Olympic stststation....really well too on 20 meters....but he was not hearing me....I was sick for a week.....it's situations like these, plus not having enough time, and well, that's the way it goes....Thanks anyway for the advice.....

Was wondering this myself. Google showed "All Talk, No Action," which fits in my case.  ;D
