It's an Excel file, the .xlsx format. (That's because I created it in Excel, but it's really just a text table now.)

I just checked and downloaded it okay. You have to be logged in to Yahoo to access the site, though. I just tried with another browser (that wasn't logged in to Yahoo) and it failed.

Find the link on the page at the upper right that says "Sign In", sign in, and try again.

Re: Cross Country Mobile/Portable Operation

Richard Rohrer
 

Ok everyone.  Here is the schedule according to the XYL.  DM86 on 8/25 during the day.  DM48 & DM37 on 9/5 during the day.  DM68 on evening of 9/3. DM67 for two evenings 9/6-9/7. DM95 on evening of 9/8.  Gainesville on evening of 9/9. 

I have decided since the rig will be in the car to use KC3EF/M for this trip.  

Will try to post possible times for the day events, but will probably be in areas with no coverage, but will try to post estimate the night before from the hotel.  If we wander off path to a different grid will try to post also.  If anyone is interested in the entire route let me known and I can e-mail the links to google maps that show the entire trip.

.WOW !  Great job  !!!   This would have taken me days/weeks to process.
 
As suspected  most of East coast grids (FM/FN)  are somewhat easy to work.
 
Looking through the list, it seems I have 7 out of all on list worked: DN04/DM74/DM87/DM90/DN43/EN38DM53; However, I know I've missed a 1/2 dozen or so over the years which are probably on the list. 
 
This morning I got all excited over an Eqsl from 2007... checked logs and couldn't find that station which was in EM39 (last one to finish MO) ... turns out it was a SSB  QSO - BAH !

I'm not an expert on "big data manipulation", but I know my way around Excel pretty well. So I took on Jerry and David's challenge, and here are the results.

There are just over 2.2 million QSOs in the database, but that includes non-US stations/grids, and QSOs that don't include grids. Filtering to just QSOs with US stations with grids included and grids within the 436 that count for the 070 award takes the total down to about 598 thousand. I then tallied (not manually!) how many QSOs were with each of those 436 grids. Note that this counts QSOs, not unique callsigns (so there are many duplicates in the count). I also did not do any real quality checking other than that they were valid 4-character grids that matched one of the 436. So if someone had logged me at my home QTH (which is FN20), but put EN20 or DN20 as the grid, it was counted as that errant grid.

- There are eleven grids that have no QSOs at all: 

DL88 
DM85 
DN01 
DN02 
DN25 
DN34 
DN52 
DN57 
DN65 
DN75 
EN28 

- There are thirty other grids with less than ten QSOs each:

DN11 1
DN12 1
DN67 1
DN92 1
DM28 2
DM39 2
DN21 2
DM47 3

DM90 5
DN56 5
DM96 7
DN10 7
DN93 8
DN95 8
EN38 8
DN53 9
DN68 9

- There are four grids with over 10,000 QSOs each. 

FN42 10027
FM19 10262
FM18 12395
FN20 20760

I'll be posting the results spreadsheet to the Yahoo page if anyone wants to check on other grids.

Yes, it could be built from submissions from members, but don't forget we also have the log checker's database. That would have a larger sample size than anything we could get from direct submissions for this purpose.

Just wondering if there should be a "most wanted" list for needed grids ???   Maybe it should be limited to 10 or so; so as not to overwhelm the list at first... or 50 or 100 ?
 
This could be a useful tool for those planning on mini-Expeditions to activate needs grids. It could be set-up on Excel or similar software.
 
Any comments ???

Re: Wanted list for grids ?

The database (in an anonymized form) is available publicly for anyone to run stats,  and the checker already provides a page with a lot of the common "who has worked ____?"  questions.
Both are here (also linked to from checker main page):

There are a few specific grids listed on there .. I can add more on request.

Here's a grid map (2010 ARRL survey of needed grids on 6M)
