Most Wanted DXCC Entities

Most Wanted DXCC Entities from Germany (Central Europe)

This list represents the Most Wanted DXCC Entities from Germany (Central Europe) in a timeline since 2003.

The rankings are based on the results of the Annual DARC DXCC Scoreboard.

From 2020, the ranking of the most wanted entities will be determined differently. It is no longer based on a simple yes / no evaluation but is now determined on a band-related basis 160 m though 6 m. Compared to previous years, this results in a possibly slightly different but more precise ranking and percentages and, above all, better reflects the needs of the younger DX'ers among us.
