Re: Have you worked the country Transnistria?

Mike-

Thanks for the pointer. That actually got me on the correct path looking at some of these countries. I just find it fascinating that they exist and that with the DXCC list acknowledging stuff that even *I* wouldn't call a country that they aren't in the list.

I found some more info about Transnistria. Apparently they have been using the "T10" prefix: https://clublog.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/folders/98493

Looking at that list, the funniest one I've found is "1Z" - the "Karen State". Imagine that, a whole country of "Karens"! 😁

Now I'm curious and I'm going to have to go through my log and see if I've worked any of these strange places.

Yea I had heard of it long ago. Not recognized by anyone other than Russia I believe. I could be wrong but I think it "self assigned" the D1 prefix much to the chagrin of the IARU. They keep company with Turkish Cyprus (1B) as odd ball places that don't count for DXCC.

I saw this country on the news. I had never heard of it before. It was formed July 21 1992. It has a constitution, flag, national anthem, and coat of arms.
