It is interesting how the double peaks of Cycle 24 coincide with the double peaks of the ATNO DXCC I worked for the corresponding year. Considering how modest my station is in terms of antenna systems and power levels, I have done well. But I am afraid that my station capability combined with my skills have reached entitlement. With the propagation of Cycle 24 - 300 DXCC is probably all that this station is entitled to max out at. Any antenna upgrades I can do is limited because of my HOA situation and limited land. This same station in Cycle 23 however could have probably reached Honor Roll - all things being equal. In Cycle 23, propagation makes up for a lot of station shortcomings. How I may have done in Cycle 23 speculative, and a fruitless one at that since I cannot turn back time and enter the amateur ranks 15 years earlier. In the mean time - I will try the few ATNOs I can still muster from this station and perhaps reach 305. Chasing DXCC can still be a lot of fun through the DX Marathon as stations are on a more level playing field (various classes of power and antennas), dealing with the same propagation we are all dealt with. Everybody gets a fresh start as the clock turns over at the first of the year.
