#23: Nicaragua – H7DX

There are locals whom I have worked, and YN4SU has been the beacon that I have worked on most bands.

H7DX was a small team from DL.

Continent: NA ITU Zone: 11 CQ Zone: 7

Added to the DXCC List: on the original 1937 list. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicaragua

Flag

Rareness Factor: “Garden Variety DX and good coffee”

Current Clublog Most Wanted (as of this writing): #205

DXpeditions: there have been so many – but since there are a few active “locals” and also holiday style activations, large scale DXpeditions have never really been needed. There have also been many contest activations.

Merit Badges

Garden Variety

Good coffee

Background

There has been several violent upheavals in Nicaragua that I can remember over the years.

DXCC Entity “Vital Stats”

Important DXCC Resources

  1. ARRL DXCC Standings – http://www.arrl.org/dxcc-standings
  2. LOTW – https://lotw.arrl.org/cgi-bin/lotw_page_auth/default
  3. Clublog – https://clublog.org/index.php
  4. The History of the DXCC by (me) – History of the DXCC

BTW – I think the best DXCC List is either found at Clublog or in LOTW. The ARRL DXCC Desk and other parts of its web site regarding DXCC almost look abandoned. Luckily, LOTW and their standings lists look well kept, supported and looked after.

Parting Shots

  1. A next door neighbor with a few locals and enough small team or single DXpeditions to keep this entity off the Top 100 Most Wanted – but I’m actually a little surprised its at #205 – I thought it would be higher on the list
