Lets not go to something being Easier/Harder, I went there once wilh LONP and was slapped down quickly.  All I said was that when those of us early LONP numbers got ours, it was harder than it is today.  Only about 500 members when I got my 100, now there are 2600 members so getting 100 not as difficult.  (shutting mouth now before I get slapped down again)

Jim-
You are so right on some are unattainable for various reasons!  Here's some of my "don't even think about it" - at least until the solar cycle turns up and prop improves.

China Clipper - I need Taiwan & Philippines

Wrk'd all OZ - I need ACT (Austrailian Capital Territory)

Golf - Hole #13

Above 60 - I need Nunavet, NW Territories, and Greenland

Just not going to happen for me in the near term. 
But don't give up!  All things, including A, E, I, O, and sometimes N, eventually come along.

I could use a contact on 20M of any mode from Illinois to close out 20M WAS
Also contacts of nay mode from WY and HI to close out 80M WAS
I need a digital contact from NE to close out Digital WAS
and finally a Fone contact from ND to close Fone WAS.
I am 8 countries away from Digital DXCC

Sorry Rick - I turned the radio off!! hihi — I’m now band hopping.  On 10M hoping to hear something since there is a very strong Peru station on 15M  but so far nothing on 10.  will probably go back to 40 and see what’s going on.

Re: Who's Working What

If anyone needs me on WTW  for an "A" please let me know.  REMEMBER:  I have club station K9ATI, but you have to ask if you need it.

My 160m sloper hasn't worked since I put it back up a couple years ago.  Been trouble shooting it when I have time, but problems must be atop tower and I can't climb any longer. If I get it working I will let everyone know.

Would like to help Lewis, but we've already worked on 160m.  Hopefully some others can help you out.  Would be nice to get it done before the 160m season goes away!

Re: Soapbox

Rick - N7WE
 

Decided to try something different this time.  Cranked the power setting down to 5w, hooked up the wattmeter to make sure was really only 5w,  and was pleasantly surprised at the contacts I could make.  Mostly had to work search and pounce and time my responses to CQs.  Only picked up a few by calling CQ.  Thanks to all those who hung in there and worked me.  Saw lots of AGN AGN PLS, but only a few SORRY NO COPY.  But I didn't even respond to calls from Milt in CA, Barry in BC, or Wes in UT.  Saw them, but knew 5w wouldn't do it.  There were some I could work on 40 but not 80 and vice versa - interesting!

All in all a fun contest. Learned some new things.  I may go QRP again.
