Great job! QSL manager is SV1RP. https://www.dx-world.net/sv2rsg-mt-athos/

I stumbled across his last night on 40m too and was able to make the contact - ATNO for me!
It took me 23 years to finally hear that station, I must be unlucky .
But did hear and work it twice this week;
20m CW on 2021-11-30 and 2 days later on 20m ft8.
''never give up''
I have Mt Athos confirmed on 2 bands thanks to SK Monk Apollo. I would not try to work the current Mt. Athos on those bands under any circumstances. Just because I can't hear others calling him that doesn't mean there aren't a ton of others trying to work him for an ATNO. Now on bands where I don't have it confirmed you bet I will be in the pileups
I was able to work him on 20M FT8 F/H mode.... I checked Clublog and its confirmed ! ATNO - only 50 years to get that one.
He's obviously WAAAAAYYYY more active and "aware of the DX community" than Monk Apollo ever was - big clue being his willingness to use FT8 in F/H Mode which clearly shows he's out to embrace modern tech as well as CW
Still hoping to catch him myself but not yet....
Kudos to all those who have
Heard on 40 cw … millions calling.
569 +/- Zombie callers…
Not needed hr got Monk Apollo - SK on
cw-5 bands, took a few yrs.GL/73’s
Monk Iakovos starting at 7:15 in the following video:
Can't say I didn't try. Watched the spots but only actually copied him once day for a bit on CW and a few sparse decodes on FT8. Never got through for what would be an ATNO.
There WAS a pirate for a while; that kinda stuff really tees me off....
