    I remember a QST article from way back, probably early to mid 70's. It was about a ham who worked every single DXCC entity. Not only all the current entities at that time, he also worked every deleted entity as well. It's been a lot of years, but it seems like he even worked them all on 20 meter phone. I wonder how many can could have made that claim? Possibly none. But most certainly, no one on the green side of the sod.

    There are currently 62 deleted entities. Find the list at this link:

    How many do you have confirmed?

    I've been chasing DX for 50 years and many of the deleted entities were deleted before I was licensed. I do have 6 worked and confirmed:

    PJ2Bonaire/Curacao
    KZ5 Canal Zone
    OK Czechoslovakia
    DM German Democratic Republic
    PJ7 Sint Maarten, Saba, St Eustatius
    ZS9 Walvis Bay

    Hmm, I would guess I have none on the list, but I have a QSL from PJ2 - Bonaire/Curacao.

    I think it is W1FH (sk) to whom you refer. While others of his contemporaries were close, Charlie was the only one who worked all.
    As for me, licensed since 1961 and have 20:
    Abu Ali
    Yemen 4W
    Saudi Arabia/ Iraq Neutral Zone 8Z4
    2 x Germany
    Bajo Nuevo HK0
    Serrana Bank HK0/KP3
    Swan Is KS4
    CanalZone
    PJ x 2
    Netherlands Borneo PK5
    Southern Sudan ST0
    Desroches VQ9
    PDR Yemen VS9A
    British North Borneo ZC5
    Walvis Bay ZS9
    Penguin Is. ZS0
    Kingman KH5k

    all but one with less than 100w.

    Oops, when I saw Southern Sudan on your list it jogged my memory so I went back and checked. In 1991 I worked ST0DX in Southern Sudan, so I guess I have 7 confirmed.

    Wow, Impressive list.

    You may be right about W1FH. I searched his call on-line and he has some impressive achievements. 1st post war DXCC certificate issued, among others.

    I've only been on since 1987, but I've worked seven of those on the list, but what happened to Yugoslavia? It was separated into new entities just like the PJ group was? I can't seem to remember the prefix for Yugoslavia (YU ?)

    CRS Can't Remember ... Stuff, yeah that's it stuff!

    I don't think Yugoslavia (YU) was deleted. Counts as Serbia (also YU) now.
