My challenge to work DXCC on 17m using FT8 is coming along nicely – I’ve now worked fifty separate entities as follows.
Although I’m not going to go out of my way to get them confirmed because Logbook of The World and the DXCC award system doesn’t differentiate between different data modes, it’s good to see that 43 out of these 50 have already confirmed via LoTW.
It’s already starting to get difficult to find new countries to work and I know things will only get more tricky, especially considering the state of the bands. It doesn’t matter though because I’ve not set any time limit so I will complete this challenge. If you’re in a country that I’ve not worked yet and would like to help me out, please contact me and perhaps we can arrange a sked.
