The DX Magazine issues most-wanted DXCC entities survey results (Feb 
11, 2005) -- According to 2004 survey results published in the 
January/February issue of The DX Magazine, North Korea (P5) remains 
atop DXers' "most-wanted" lists for DXCC. Number two on the list is 
Andaman and Nicobar Islands (VU4), although a post-survey DXpedition 
in December is likely to have diminished worldwide demand, despite 
its being cut short by the tsunami. In third place--but topping the 
list in four US time zones--was Scarborough Reef (BS7). Fourth is 
Lakshadweep (VU7), and fifth is Yemen (7O). A DXpedition set for this 
month from number six Peter Island (3Y/P) could blunt demand for that 
rare one. Rounding out the top 10 are Navassa Island (KP1) and 
Desecheo Island (KP5), both under jurisdiction of the US Fish and 
Wildlife Service which has denied visitation permission, Bouvet 
(3Y/B) and Kure Island (KH7K). "It was a real surprise to see North 
Korea at the top of the most-wanted list," commented The Daily DX 
Editor Bernie McClenny, W3UR. The most-recent P5 operation was by Ed 
Giorgadze, P5/4L4FN, in 2001 and 2002, during which he logged more 
than 16,000 QSOs. McClenny, who also edits "How's DX?" for QST, notes 
there's still a large demand for VU4, but he expressed guarded 
optimism that the VU4RBI/VU4NRO DXpedition's emergency communication 
operation following the December 29 earthquake and tsunami would make 
Indian authorities more willing to allow future DXpeditions. "Keep 
you fingers crossed," he said.
