My 2012 12m goal achieved!

by M0TTB - Andy on 12/23/12

I was getting a bit worried, not many days left of 2012, and still 2 to go to get 200dxcc for the year on 12m.

Yesterday I picked up OA for 199, and then today, after quite a bit of calling, I managed to get TI for #200. It was a good challenge, as it took me to about a week of the end of the year to achieve, and for much of the year I was not hopeful that I'd reach 200. Losing my hexbeam and mast for a month didn't help either, losing a 'banker' 7P dxped was a blow.

Didn't get SM on 12m all year!!! If I had ended up on 199, the missing SM would've haunted me for years to come. Fortunately it is just a quirky omission, rather than a disaster.
