A few years ago, I was really into working s2s contacts and I decided that all of my Chaser points would only come via s2s contacts.
Then I caught the SOTA DX disease and really let my s2s chasing and logging slip. In fact, I’ve barely logged any s2s contacts for well over 3 years. However, despite this, there are few I would still like to make. Over the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to make some pretty rare s2s contacts from EU, but I still need one more s2s contact with the following Associations…
|Association(s) Chased All Bands||Count|
|EA3 - Spain - Catalunya||1|
|EA7 - Spain - South||1|
|IS0 - Sardinia||1|
|KP4 - USA - Puerto Rico||1|
|OD - Lebanon||1|
|UT - Ukraine||1|
|VK7 - Australia - Tasmania||1|
|YU - Serbia||1|
|ZS - South Africa||1|
OD - Lebanon s2s contacts are rarer than hens teeth and as such, I’m not holding my breathe for a second contact any time soon. On numerous occasions, I’ve tried to work another s2s with ZS, without any luck.
VK8, is a very hard state to work from a G summit and I’ve never managed a s2s contact with the Northern Territories… My SOTA logs show quite a few VK8 contacts, but they all came via just 2 Chasers.
Anyone else, frustrated by missing Associations?
