Mega DX Peditions Honor Roll

- Upgraded and Updated Millennium Version of the Honor Roll

Mega DX Peditions Honor Roll was published for the first time a couple of

years ago. At that time the list contained some 40 DX peditions which had

made over 30.000 QSO's. At that time the list merely contained just the

call sign of the DX Pedition and the total amount of QSO's.

As the "author" of the Mega DX Peditions Honor Roll I received some 150

comments, corrections etc. to the Honor Roll. Many of the comments were

made by the operators or organizers of the DX Peditions and very valuable

information was received and data corrected. Thanks!

There was also quite a few comments asking for more information to be

added to the Mega DX Peditions Honor Roll. The new updated and upgraded

Mega DX Peditions Honor Roll now contains much more information that just

the call sign and total amount of QSO's. I hope the list now satisfies, to

some extent, those, who wants to know more about the DX Peditions than just

the amount of QSO's.

Following data can now be found from the Mega DX Peditions Honor Roll file:

(Excel 4.0 Spreassheet, 25 K)

- Position

- Original position (the position the DX Pedition had when it was

entered to the list)

- Call sign or call signs of the DX Pedition

- DXCC entity

- Lengthf of the DX Pedition

- Dates of the DX Pedition

- Year of the DX Pedition

- QSO total of the DX Pedition including duplicates

- Uniques. The amount of different stations worked

- Number of stations at the DX Pedition

- Special comments regarding the DX Pedition

- QSL manager of the DX Pedition

- Internet web page of the DX Pedition

- Amount of operators at the DX Pedition

- The operators at the DX Pedition

- Amount of QSO's and percentage per continents (NA, Europe, Asia,


- Amount of QSO's and percentage per mode (CW/SSB/RTTY)

- Amount of QSO's per band (160-10, 6 m)

Most of the information is collected from DX Bulletins and DX Pedition

articles. Some information have been asked from the organizers of DX

Peditions. The list is not complete - far away from that. Full data has

been received only from the top ten DX Peditions.

Special thanks to Toshi, JA1ELY, who have published this Honor Roll in the

Japanese "Five-Nine Magazine" and who have helped a lot in collecting the

data. Thanks!

Year 2000 has been very productive. Five DX Peditions have hit the Top Ten

this year, but nobody has really challenger ZL9CI's first place. A52A, K5K,

XZ0A, FO0AAA and TX0DX have all made it to the Top Ten.

The 1992 Malyj Vysotskij 4J1FS DX Pedition still holds the first place in

the amount of "uniques". That DX Pedition logged an amazing 36.109

different stations to it's log.

Those truly interested to receive the rest and the additional information

of these DX Peditions can ask for a Excel 4.0 spreadsheet (size roughly 25K)

from the author by e-mail: oh2bu@sral.fi

More data requested!

I'm sure that many of you reading this e-mail has been a member of a DX

Pedition listed in this Honor Roll. For you - as well as to all readers - I

have a special request: Please, if you find any data that is not correct or

if you have any data missing from the list, please give me a note -

oh2bu@sral.fi - and I will correct that data to the next updated version.

The list is not complete. No data have been found or received from eg.

YV0AA, HK0TU, E44DX DX Peditions. Any data of those DX Peditions will be

highly appreciated.

When enough corrections or additional data had been received, an updated

version will be published. In the near future all the data will be found

from the web pages of OHDXF, OH DX Foundation (to be announced later)

Jari, OH2BU
