It took about forty five years to complete the DXCC award.
My first contact was made with KR8GA 15 m SSB on 10th Oct. 1970. Following QSOs were with W7VSO, JA3OQE/1, JA2XLM, JD1ABO, HM1FE, .......
My 100th entity was Wake Island KW6HG 20 m SSB on 22th Apr. 1974.
In 1970's I had 115 entities, the last one was with TI2DO 15 m SSB on 16th Oct. 1978.
I was far from DXing because of my job and family life after that. After long long sleeping, I came back to the DX world with new home and antenna from 1993.
My 200th entity was PJ7(deleted) on 27th May 1994, reached to 300 entities on 21th Mar. 1997. In 23th Jul. 2011 I worked with Z8 and only KP1 was left.
As you know, I worked with K1N few days ago and that was the my goal.
