The DX Magazine has published a detailed list of the MOST WANTED COUNTRIES. It says that more than 30% of the participating DXers still need P5, BS7, A5, VU4 (And), BV9, VK0 (Heard), 7O, FR/T, VU7 (Lac), SV/A, 3Y (Bouvet), VK0 (Mac), 5A, E3, XZ, 3B6, FR/G, ZL9, FT/Z, 3C0, XW, FR/J, ZS8, EP and 1S. It seems quite interesting that 14% of those DXers just repressed that they still miss the QSL of P5 (and did not write that down on their list)...
