Before I started chasing my own made up DX “pursuit” using the DXCC and IOTA list, I used to be a DXCC “junkie” Now that its been almost 4 years since I made my last DXCC ATNO – its importance has faded to the point where I just don’t care about it much anymore.
Today I saw yet another discussion of whether or not Mt. Athos should stay on the list – and for the first time ever, I thought to myself “What’s the big freakin’ deal?”. Yes – I used to also be that way – but with enough distance from the program, I can say the whole discussion seemed so bizarre – silly even. Its funny how things look in hindsight.
I think anachronistic is the best way to describe it.
