LA8AJA LoTW stats in January 2016


Posted: January 19th, 2016 under Hamradio, LoTW.

I’ve gotten 4 more DXCC’s confirmed via LoTW since last time I reported. The total number of confirmations are up two percent compared to last year. I didn’t work too many contacts last year, but I did get 56% of those qsoes confirmed via LoTW, so that is not too bad. These numbers are from January 14th.

Yearly statistics:

2015 115 64 56 %
Total 25181 7363 29 %

Here are my band, mode and DXCC statistics:

Band/Mode Mixed Phone CW DIGI 160 80 40 30 20 17 15 12 10 6 2

KMLmaker by LA8AJA


Posted: January 7th, 2016 under Software.

kml_maker_example As I mentioned in a previous post, I have done some php-programming for my own amusement. KMLmaker is one of the things I have made. It’s nothing new or revolutionary, but it’s just my implementation of it.

It is a page that takes your adif-file for input. It then extracts all the contacts on the band you specify. If you have specified a maidenhead locator in the contact, the program will then use that to calculate the geographical position of the contact and then draw a line between that point and your homeqth. The program will make a kml-file for use in Google Earth to display your contacts. You can also specify a date-range if you wish.

Hamradio Deluxe has this function implemented, but I do not use this program, and I don’t want to have a demo-version installed just for this purpose. This is more or less the same function, but tweaked a little bit to my liking.

You can find KMLmaker here: http://la8aja.com/kmlmaker

V73D and S79C worked for two new iota’s


Posted: December 8th, 2015 under DX, Hamradio, Soundclips.

v73d_qsl On October 22nd, I worked V73D on 30M CW. I had tried on several occasions before, both in the morning and in the afternoon. They had a good signal several times, but they weren’t paying attention to Europe when they could have worked many. Anyway, I got them in the log and OC-029 was a new iota for me and a new country on 30M.

On October 24th, I worked V73D on 20M CW.

On October 25th, I worked V73D on 17M CW for a new one on 17M.

On November 6th, I worked 3W3MD on 15M CW. I thought they were on an iota, but unfortunately, they weren’t on the iota at this time. I missed the activation from 3W3MD/p from AS-162.

On November 21st, I worked S79C on 15M SSB from AF-119 for a new iota. They went qrt the day after, so I was lucky to get them in the log, as I didn’t pay attention to them earlier that week.

On November 27th, I worked PJ2/PA3EYC on 17M CW for a new one on 17M. C6AUM was worked on 15M RTTY for a new one on RTTY. Both stations uploaded the log to LoTW within 24hours.
