VK0EK Heard Island DXpedition

*'Heard Island Now The Longest Inactive Entity on the DXCC List!'*

No other entity in the Top 10 lists have been inactive longer than Heard
Island! Heard Island was last activated in 1997, so that was 18 years ago.

Navassa is on the air now, Bouvet was activated in 2008, North Korea in
2002, South Sandwich and South Georgia in 2002, Crozet in 2009, Scarborough
Reef in 2007, Tromelin in 2014, Kingman Reef in 2000, Palmyra in 2005,
Pratas in 2003, Juan de Nova/Europa in 2003.

Heard Island is the "next up" as far as top 10 Most Wanted entities in
the DXCC Program's entity list. After K1N is over, Heard Island will rise
up to #4 in the DX Publications Most Wanted List – but this is of course
always subject to change due to those who participate in the poll each
year - See DXPUB_MOST_WANTED at:
And will be #5 in the Clublog Most Wanted List – and this also changes
based on those who upload their log files - See ClubLog_most_wanted at:

The DX Publications survey was done in October, 2014, and since then,
Tromelin, and now Navassa have been activated. Only Navassa affects the
Heard Island position in this survey, and in fact also in the Clublog list.

While both of these "surveys" are subject to all kinds of variables,
DX-pedition leaders do look at these when considering where they might
go next – so they are useful. And they are fun for DX-ers to "dream and
scheme" as far as thinking about that next big ATNO!
