Hi Tony. When I started DXing, many years ago, I was told that I
would never be able to add North Korea to my totals. There were a
couple of others too. Albania was one. Well, I have them now. I
do understand the frustration. But, no one wants to wait for 30
or 40 years like I'm doing for Bouvet. :)))) Every damn time
they came on the air, I was in the middle of a PCS thanks to Uncle
Don't give up. I didn't.
Kind regards and 73,
Steve, N4JQQ, DXAC, Delta Division

it does not seem fair that some can add them to their totals and
some won’t ever have that chance.
worse, some currently on the list but unworkable for various
reasons, political, global warming, or whatever, are
preventing a whole generation of hams from achieving the DXCC
program highest honor, working them all. (Ditto the factors
Preventing us from working P5. )
it is this point that i take greatest exception to. It appears i
will go to my grave failing to achieve that honor because a few
people think the DXCC rules are cut in stone.
I for one think an award should be achievable. If not, then it
should be changed.
