    Post up your latest ATNO ("All Time New One") no matter how sublime...

    I just added J79WTA on 80 Meters ... took more than a few go-rounds but finally made it in the log both ways! Note that his QRZ page is a bit out of date - but this is a regular spot for him to take holiday.

    Dominica Island - ATNO territory for me on 80

    What's yours? Even if it's just a bit "off shore" or just "over the border" - ATNO is the important part! Along with BAND!!! It's one thing to work a DX on 20m and quite another to work the same DX on 40, 80, or 160!!!

    Post up YOUR latest "All Time New One" :)

    Dave, good topic: I'm gonna have to think about this one for a while. Not bragging or anything, but it's been quite a while for an ATNO for me. I'll get back to you! :D

    VP6D on all the HF bands plus 160. Also got the on all modes. Great operation!

    I was only able to work ATNO TX3X Chesterfield on 80 CW in 2015. And that was before I built my low band receive array, so I was listening on the 40' top loaded vertical in the middle of my back yard!

    I recently started working 60m so I have many BAND/ATNOs.

    If you mean year 2018 "confirmed" ATNO's, just YJ0GC (20 and 17 CW), E31A (20 CW), and Z60A.

    Sent for, but still waiting for, SV2ASP/A on 20 CW.

    Just to clarify, are you suggesting that "ATNO" refers to a new 'band country', e.g., J7 on 80 M?

    I'm at 297 worked. The chances of me finding a truly ATNO are fairly slim.

    I always thought that ATNO meant, well, All Time New One, not a band fill, but it's just a fun thread so we can go with whatever the group wants. :)

    Anyway, my last ATNO was E44WE Palestine back in November which brings me to 281/284.

    As for band fills on 80: FS/W9MK St Martin, GI0VJE Northern Ireland, and ZL2OK New Zealand. 80 is tough from here with a low (55'at the feed) inverted V, and I'm struggling for DXCC; my last band for 5BDXCC. Now at 50/60.

    ATNOs are rare visitors around here, band new bands and modes do happen from time to time.

    Actual ATNOs don't happen here anymore since I only need P 5 to have them all. I don't push for ATNOs on individual bands much since I have 7BDXCC don't work 30 meters, and no way I will get DXCC on 160. But I recently did get Trindade & Martin Vaz Is on 40 for an ATNO on that band
