Progress Report


From little things, big things grow. I'm working on how to use all amateur modes across all amateur bands to contact all countries. There are an estimated 100 modes which I'm allowed to use across six amateur bands available to me, 80m, 40m, 15m, 10m, 2m and 70cm. There are 340 DXCC entities. There's roughly 204-thousand combinations, but some of those are unlikely to happen, say Belize V3A to Perth using Olivia. Starting with just HF, I have access to about 136-thousand combinations.

The Stats

Out of 340 DXCC entities, I've worked 44, some of those have been confirmed.

Out of an estimated 100 modes, I've used 5, SSB, FM, EchoLink, IRLP, AllStar Link.

Out of six bands available to me, I've used 6.

Out of about 136-thousand combinations, I've worked an estimated 68, or about 0.05%.

To Do List

  • Start somewhere
  • Convert current station log into a log that shows entities per mode per band.
  • Create Update a canonical list of digital modes.
  • Set-up station to actually use those modes.
