    Just getting into HF this year with some FT8 work with a small station (batteries only first couple of months) and one amazing night in came the appropriate call for ATNO in Australia VK6OZ.

    Fantastic night. Worked NZ and a couple of islands as well. Hasn't been as good before or since.

    Isn't it awesome (at this cruddy end of the sunspot cycle) when a patch of propagation somewhere good happens and you get the contact?!

    Cool beans :)

    Still no ATNO's for the year. I hope to learn / do HFTA (HF Terrain Analysis) soon to help me devise the best wire directional antenna for getting over the hill towards SE Asia to pick off perhaps a few of the "low hanging fruit" ATNO's I still need that way such as Taiwan, Vietnam, Palau and a handful of others. Bouvet was the only one on the calendar that would have been a possible ATNO. Sitting at 317 current.

    On behalf of those of us who have worked them all, consider yourself lucky you can still enjoy the anticipation of working any ATNO. I miss that thrill.

    9G2HO, Ghana, 40 CW last night. With the Southgate Type 7 and my homebrew inverted V, center at 40 feet. Manual keying, paper logging.

    No spotting help, no computer, just a boy and his radio.

    Already confirmed by LoTW.

    Funny as KP4 was the first ‘country’ I worked as a Novice on 15cw. Still remember his call -WP4BBN. Seemed a great distance back then but ironic now that it’s only a one hour flight from here. Took me almost 30 years between the first and last one.
