What came first. DXCC country code 180 (Mount Athos), or Monk Apollo getting his license to operate from Mount Athos?
I can't find when this entity was added to the DXCC list.
Worked him multiple times on different bands and got the QSL cards to prove it. RIP and God Bless Monk
In spite of having worked them all, I never made a Q with the Monk - mainly because I was away when he was active.

Apollo began radio in the late 80s/ early 90s.
