So I'm relatively new to 160M DXCC, and received #3379 on my certificate dated 11/17/2019. I went out to look at the PDF of all the other hams with 160M DXCC today, and noticed there are only 2826 call signs listed.

Is there a file somewhere that shows all the hams who have achieved 160M DXCC and when?

Congratulations on 160M DXCC. I've never seen that list but here is a great story about the first 160M DXCC back in 1969.

As understand it, old DXCC records are on paper and not easily converted to digital files. There is a standings list but that is different. But that part of the web site is where such a list would go.

It may be possible to pay for someone to do the records conversion, just as there is funding to preserve historic DX station logs.

The DX Log Archive program was created, thanks to Kan Mizoguchi, JA1BK, to obtain, preserve and utilize paper logs from rare and significant DXpeditions.

Thanks. I just took your standings list in PDF, highlighted it, and pasted it into an Excel spreadsheet, where I sorted the call signs.

I was curious how many of my hams friends had 160M DXCC. I found a few!

The standings list is more useful for identifying friends with DXCC, as you can expect old 1x2 calls to be re-used via the Vanity call sign program.
