|Where to start with DXCC||Jul 29th 2011, 04:39||2||1,320||on 30/7/11|

|I have about 210+ countries confirmed, enough for 20m dxcc, enough for cw dxcc, and I think something else. I've never filled out a single dxcc application and I'm wondering where do I begin? Can I do everything in one shot with a card checker? Do I start with the 100 first? I just sent several hundred cards out so maybe in the next year or so I'll be closing in on 5b dxcc. I'm guessing I should start getting applications submitted!
Once you get started / DXCC official.. is there a way to check online what you have "on record" to keep track where you are? What you need? etc? (If not.. that would be a cool idea!)
|AM on HF - Are you with us ?||WA3VJB||on 27/7/11|
|I occasionally use AM on HF with some of my vintage gear but it's not really a regular thing. I don't ragchew much, and any of my friends I ragchew with are either in SSB or CW.
I'd love to get a few more people with 2m or 6m AM gear and get on the air once in a while. I have a few of the Gonset Communicators that would be fun to use with others from time to time.
AM is a nice sounding fun mode to use and you don't even need older vintage gear to get on and try out .Although I will say I do prefer using the older gear with tubes, glowing pilot lights, lots of knobs and plenty of weight!
