Author Topic: Which DX-peditions Will You Be Chasing in 2015/16 for an ATNO?  (Read 33457 times)

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!

Is there a chronological chart listing confirmed/proposed/wishful dxpeditions all the way into 2016? I can't seem to find anything.

I know what you mean. I like the dx-world chart, but I can only seem to get a monthly view. I wonder what it would take to create something like the calendars that we get on the contest site, http://www.hornucopia.com/contestcal/index.html.

How about that, almost exactly the same list for me except Kerguelen instead of Chesterfield, as I worked TX0DX back in 2000.

Edit: And Spratly, too!

Since my DXCC odometer is just about to roll over 300 I decided to make a list of all my remaining entities needed and - surprise -  the ones I needed plus the ones I have credit for (and a couple of in-betweens) only came out to 339 Huh
After an hour or so of comparing lists between the logging program, LoTW, and the Excel sheet I use I had the (pleasure?) of finding one (5H3EE) that I worked and confirmed 5 years ago but somehow didn't get it in for card checking!  Instant ATNO, sort of, and one less needed from Awful Africa which is straight over the pole from here and all the way through Europe.  With the further addition of ST100S on Saturday night that leaves just 10 needed from the Dark Continent.  Almost everything else is islands/reefs/rocks.  Bring 'em on!

The DX World Weekly Bulletin has a list of announced and "contemplated" operations.
Current issue is here

This is the best source of accurate info.  I also use it to keep track of bandfill opportunities.  GL.

Hi John,

I didn't include Kerguelen since there's very little info on it.  Hopefully more will be announced later.  I was hoping the VK0EK team will stop by Kerguelen however that hasn't been confirmed yet.

You're welcome.  Now that you have the list I'm eagerly awaiting to see what you need Smiley

I hope I'm not the only one who needs 9Q Cheesy

Hey Rich,

I see you are being listed as the pilot for 3Y0F.  Do you know if the NCDXF will fund this dxpedition?  If it does then that's a sign the dxpedition will likely happen Smiley

Exciting times indeed!

My "to do" list for 2015/16:
3Y0F
E3
VK0EK
VP8/S
VP8/G
DX0P (Spratly)
PQ0T

If I check off these, I'll be within 5 of HR .... still a long way, but, when I look back to when I got started in "The Chase", I never thought I'd be at this level.

Nauru (on right now)
Heard
DR Congo
Kerguelen
S Georgia
S Sandwich

Palmyra and Jarvis - is that confirmed?

That should bring me nicely up to 319. If we get Palmyra/Jarvis, that will be 320.

Not too bad considering I really only got in the chase in 2006.

Eritrea, Lakshadweep, and Chesterfield--the only ones this year that I need to work.  I still need an operation with a good antenna in Cambodia.  I am currently at 351 total with 332 current.
