RDA 2500 in a year?
Regions page on mydx.eu was looked a bit, to get some stats.
For each Rayon, there is date and call for last confirmed QSO.
This QSO is either uploaded to mydx, hamlog or LotW,
as well as direct QSLs scanned (maybe even some via buro).
Now, assume some necommer starts RDA, and never miss one.
2500 since August 5th, 2020. 14 months of activity.
2000 since Jully 17th, 2021 (3 months)
1500 since September 6th, 2021 (1 month and 1 week)
1000 since October 2nd, 2021.
So far, 2425 RDAs were QRV and confirmed in 2021.
RA9AJ with 2268 is close: he only missed 157 RDAs in this year.
We wait Gena (and some others) to upload more LOGs, there are RDAC contest LOGs waiting, and three months of activity.
That would indicate RDA 2500 can theoretically be done in one year.
And on my side: I started RDA hunting after RA3R spam in November 2020 with standing of some 700.
After checking paper QSLs, LotW, registering to HAMLOG and making QSOs, I come to:
2067 confirmed. 1957 confirmed in 2021.
I have 18 RDAs not QRV in 2021: 4 out of 100 rarest.
376 RDAs were missed in 2021: 4 weeks of vacations in 9A, QRL, sleeping, bad CONDX, QRL. Hunters excuses ...
Thanks to activators and authors of excellent support software, RDA program is fun every day.

...great stat Iztok.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Myself started in late March 2021 from 484 and now 1411 cfm'ed, ~100 waiting for to.
Having a very small "in the middle of the city" stn I'm happy with this number.
I fully agree you wrote.
However I would go a step further.
RDA is addictive... :-D
By now I set my daily schedule to fit into the gaps in RK3AW's or UB8S's plans... ;-)

How aout 2020?
Old hamlog.eu data was checked for confirmed Rayons.
In 2020, there were 2219 different rayons. Last were confimed in May 2021 (probably QSL cards via buro).
So, 2021 is much better: till today, 2432 were confirmed, and activators are all around making QSOs.
73, GL, Good hunting
