Distance records for LA/JW/JX


Posted: April 11th, 2021 under Hamradio.

I’ve added a few new pages here. They contain a list of distance records on different bands on different propagation modes. They are far from complete, but hopefully I’ll add some more info when people contribute with information. Thanks to LA0BY for giving me a push to get these lists online.

Radio summary for 2020


Posted: April 5th, 2021 under 6M, Hamradio.

As promised, here is the summary from last year:

I worked 6 new countries on 6m last year. I did hear YB, 4S7 and VR2, but I never managed to work them. We also had several amazing openings to the far east. I didn’t work all the openings, but I did have the radio on to monitor. I also had several good openings to North America, where I managed to work Kansas and Indiana for 2 new states. I only need 5 more states to have WAS on 6m. When I check the log, I worked 80 new grids on 6m, which makes for a #904 grids worked.

Happy new year 2021!


Posted: February 7th, 2021 under Hamradio.

Here we are again. Yet another year has passed. I’ve not written a single post. It’s sad that I never got around to it. Radio activity is very low, as it has been for several years. I’m mostly active during the summer when 6m is open. Last year was no exception, and I managed to work several new ones.

To sum up 2019 quick:

I worked 4 new ones on 6m that year. E3, 9G, UA9 and CY9. The three first, were on FT8. That’s where most of the things happen these days. CY9C was in fact on SSB. I was extremely lucky to catch an opening at the same time as an expedition was there.

I will be back with a short summary for 2020 as well.

That’s it, happy late new year everyone. May the dx gods be with you.

Happy new DX year everyone. Better late than never they say. I haven’t given up on this site, but life is quite busy, and I rarely find time to sit down and do any stuff here. Radio is likewise. I barely worked any radio last year. I’ll be back with a report from last year.

#336 on LoTW with JG8NQJ/JD1


Posted: July 23rd, 2019 under Hamradio, LoTW.

jg8nqj_jd1 This was a confirmation I did not see coming. As I have only worked 3 contacts with stations from Minami Torishima, I thought I had to work another station from there to get it on LoTW. To my surprise, I got both my contacts with JG8NQJ/JD1 confirmed on LoTW. That means yet another DXCC confirmed on LoTW only. My total now is #336 confirmed.

As the world is becoming more and more digital, hopefully more and more people will use LoTW. There are still a quite a few expeditions and hams that will not use this system. I need 3 more (SV/A, EZ and VK0M) confirmed on LoTW to have all my DXCC’s worked confirmed on LoTW.

Keep the confirmations coming!
