DXCC on 24 MHz (12m)

Today I managed to collect 100 confirmations on 24 MHz for the 12m DXCC award. I have already 90 entities credited on this band: 3B9,  3XY,  4J, 4L, 4W, 4X, 5H, 5T, 5X, 5Z, 7X, 9G, 9L, 9Q, A2, A4, A6, C9, CN, CT, CT3, D4, DL, EA, EA8, EA9, EI, EK, ES, EU, F, FT4TA, FT5ZM, G, GI, GJ, GU, GW, HI, HP, HZ, I, J28, J7, JW, K/W, KG4, KH1, LA, LX, LY, OD5, OH0, OK, ON, OZ, PA, PY, R1MVI, S9, SM, SP, SV, TF, TJ, TN, TT, TU, TY, UA,  UA2 , UA9, UT, V5, VE, VK9X, VP2M, VP8/F, VP8/S, VP9, VQ9, XU, XZ, YA, YL, YO, Z8, ZD8, ZD9, ZS.

I submitted today an application with paper QSL cards for the following 4 entities: BY, HB, OY, FR. I am waiting for card checking by our local DXCC checkpoint, Clif SV1JG

In addition I have pending LoTW confirmations for 6 entities: 9K, EA6, GM, OX, TK4 and UN, which I shall submit along with my application for the certificate after the paper QSLs are credited by the ARRL DXCC desk. 

I expect that this complicated process shall take about two months and I hope to have my certificate by mid-March 2015.

BTW I have 114 worked on 24 MHz but many don't confirm, including 3B8, 4S7, 5R, 7Q7, CO, EX, EY, HB0, HL, LU, OH (!!!), OM, S5 and VU.


UPDATE 2014-12-21: I just received LoTW confirmation for Finland (OH), so now I am at 101 confirmed. Also today I worked PJ4DX, a new one on 24 MHz, and I hope to receive their LoTW confirmation soon.

UPDATE 2014-12-22: Today I received LoTW confirmation for Bonaire (PJ4), so now I am at 102 confirmed.

UPDATE 2014-12-24: One more on LoTW, CX2DK from Uruguay, so now I am at 103 confirmed, 99 via LoTW.
