200 on 12m

by M0TTB - Andy on 04/15/12

A little embarrassing, I seem to have hit 200 dxcc on 12m without realising at the time, in fact I worked the new one on 12m yesterday and just realised this evening.
The new one, and #200, was 9M2ESM. It's a bit daunting, but I was hoping to get 200 on 12 in 2012, I hit 100 for the year today, so half way there. It's not quite as easy to build up the numbers on the warc bands as there are no easy picking with contests, 17m is the same but at least 17m is open basically every day.

I have a feeling I have been a bit ambitious with my 2012 12m target, especially with solar cycle 24 seemingly stalled. I do have most of EU to still work on 12m, and the summer short skip openings will help beef up my total, but 200 seems a long way off.
