    I have worked a lot of DX peditions over my 60 years as a ham. This one was in the top 2. Great pileup control, super fast and efficient operators, when they put out info they stuck to it....all the things that make for a great op. Hope they all get back safely.

    Curious who was the other "in the top 2"?

    You certainly have a ton of experience - I do hope one day you'll get P5 :)

    The first Heard Isl DX pedition many years ago really had its act together in terms of ops, great on line logging, etc. Thanks Dave. Not sure I will live long enough for top of Honor Roll. If P 5 came on today it would be a challenge antenna wise due to recent move here....but we are working on it LOL

    Pay attention to the calendar while filling out the OQRS. I initially had November for all my contacts, and had to do it all again.

    Although of dubious character, Don Miller was the best at managing a pileup and maintaining an extraordinary rate. Most of the contemporary expeditions are multi-person activities while he often managed it alone of with one other op and achieved comparable qso totals/day. For good reason(s), many of his trips weren't accredited but that doesn't diminish his ability in that regard. I doubt any of the ops on Ducie or elsewhere these days could compete.

    Anybody else get this error when using the OQRS? I got a confirmation receipt from both Paypal and the OQRS folks.
