I'm glad to be able to work any DXpeditions I can. Everything helps toward my own DXCC (yeah, I'm not to 100 yet).
I am also looking forward to working grid DM02 on 6m in June. Someone's going to be on San Clemente Island.

The only entity I do not have confirmed is P 5.  If the announced single op, short term, low power, vertical antenna operation from P 5 actually happens in 2016 I am betting that it will remain the only entity I do not have confirmed.  Such is life.

You are located in Oregon, possibly the best location to work P5 from N.A.  However you do need to upgrade your station, perhaps by adding a legal limit amplifier.  But somehow I got the feeling that you will work them barefoot from Oregon Smiley

To my total amazement this morning our time, after seeing a 17 m spot for Denis VP8DOZ in South Georgia Island, I started to actually hear him after about 15 minutes listening!

Then, in between a couple of JAs who were calling without seeming to hear his reply, I called and made the QSO! This is my most difficult path, over the South Pole, and over the range to my south.

This was one I wasn't actively chasing, not expecting anything at all. So now, the Intrepid VP8S/G next year is looking promising.

Heard Island should be easy from here, and Trindade will be on air in a few days and will be a long shot, but I'll be listening!

You're one lucky dog Luke!  Perhaps I have a shot at it too if I get a 17m monobander.  17m is my worse band Cheesy  But first I have to start chasing him!

Although I already worked him a few weeks ago I still tune to his frequency when my alarm goes off. He was louder yesterday than when I worked him on 04 March. 100% copy, about 5x5 on peaks.

Denis is on right now.  My ESP hearing is not working very well today Angry

Well, this year has started well, with all ATNO opportunities realised.

Navassa I, much harder to work than expected, and some bands missed, but confirmed on 5 bands three modes.
Cocos I, wasn't expecting to work this one but worked them 3 bands and two modes.
South Georgia I, never expected to even hear Denis, but worked him on 17 m.
Trindade I, never expected any joy here, but was in the right place at the right time!

Now it looks like an 8-month drought of ATNO, unless something unexpected happens, until the Heard I expedition is QRV. Then Bouvet, South Sandwich, and North Korea?

I'm "only" 15 off HR - now it is starting to look possible!

There sure were lots of great DX-peditions in 2014, and some already in 2015. Which entities / DX-peditions in 2015/16 will you be chasing for an ATNO?

For me it was K1N and the next up are:

VK0EK
3Y0F

Early 2016:

VP8/S
3Y/ON4WW

The others that have been rumored - but not yet announced - are one's I don't need. In fact, if all goes well, after these I would only need Glorioso and Kingman Reef. Exciting times ahead!

The XYL wants to take a winter vacation this year.  I can't fathom the idea of missing any one of these however I think I'll lose the battle with her.  It's cheaper to go to one of these places than a divorce Cheesy
