#339 worked with Z60A in the log


Posted: June 16th, 2018 under DX, Hamradio.

z60a_qsl In January this year, it was announced that the Republic of Kosovo would be added to the DXCC list. It wasn’t long until a group started the activity on the bands.

My first qso this year, was 6O6O on 30M CW on January 2018. My previous qso was made back in November 2017. 6O6O was a joint expedition by LA7GIA and KO8SCA. That was the only band I managed to work them on.

On January 12th, I worked TY2AC on 40M CW for a new one on 40M.

On January 14th, I worked PJ7/UT6UD on 40M CW for a new one on 40M.

On January 24th, I worked Z60A on 30M CW for and all time new one. That means I’ve worked 339 DXCC’s. I only need 5 DXCC’s now to have worked them all. That was my first qso with Z6. I worked them on 40M, 20M and 17M CW a few days later.

On January 29th, I worked C81G on 30M CW from iota AF-061.

On March 6th, I worked Z2LA on 30M FT8. Z2LA was a joint dxpedition by LA7WCA, LA7THA and LA9VPA.

Om March 7th, I worked XV9DLH on 30M FT8 for a new one on digi.

On March 9th, I worked Z61AS on 30M FT8 for a new one on digi.

Om March 11th, I worked 3B9FR and C93PA on 30M FT8. Those were new on digi. I also worked 3D2EU and XR0YD on 30M CW.

On March 12th, I worked 3D2EU on 30M FT8 for a new one on digi.

On March 17th, I worked TN5R on 20M CW for a new one on 20M.

On March 18th, I Worked 3C0W on 20M for a new one on 20M. TJ2TT was worked on 17M CW for a new one on 17M. 5A1AL was worked on 17M FT8 for a new one on digi.

On March 20th, I worked TI2CC on 30M FT8 for a new one on digi.

On March 24th, I worked TJ2TT on 20M CW for a new one on 20M. I worked 9L/KW4XJ on 40M FT8 for a new one on digi.

On March 27th, I worked 9G5ZS on 30M FT8 for a new one on digi.

On April 1th, I worked JW7QIA on 40M FT8.

On April 2nd, I worked 5B/LA7THA on 20M CW. I worked YB6/JA1PBV on 30M CW from iota OC-161 for a new iota.

On April 7th, I worked VA7XW/VE2 on 30M CW from NA-038 for a new iota.

On April 11th, I worked VE7ACN/VE2 on 30M CW from NA-083 for a new iota.

On April 30th, I worked C96RRC on 17M CW from iota AF-088 for a new iota. YB3LZ/8 was worked on 30M FT8 from iota OC-242 for a new iota.

On May 1st, I worked AP2MQ on 20M FT8 for a new one on digi.

On May 7th, I worked C98RRC on 17M CW from iota AF-066 for a new iota.

That pretty much sums up the first half of this year. I’ve been playing around with FT8 (who hasn’t these days?) quite a lot. In that process, I’ve worked several new ones on digital. I’ve also gotten several confirmations on previous worked dxcc’s that weren’t confirmed. Hopefully I’ll write more often here, but I see that I’m not that motivated, or inspired, to write here. Life is busy, and I’ve been doing a lot of programming lately. I’ll write about that in a later post here.

JW8AJA LoTW stats for 2018


Posted: February 16th, 2018 under Hamradio, LoTW.

Here are my stats for my JW8AJA call. These stats are from February 16th, 2018. I have 93 DXCC’s confirmed and 50 states. It seems as I have gotten a Delaware confirmation without me noticing it. It turns out that K3WI has confirmed an LoTW contact. My log however, shows Maryland on that one. I don’t know how that one slipped past me. Anyway, all 50 states confirmed on LoTW. Now all I need are 7 more for LoTW DXCC.

The total percentage has not increased very much, but I see some new confirmations show up on LoTW from time to time. Keep those confirmations coming!

Yearly statistics:

Year # QSO’es # Confirmed %
2002 3651 1036 28.38 %
2006 1521 647 42.54 %
2011 2605 1417 54.40 %
Total 7777 3100 39.86 %

Band/Mode statistics:

Band/Mode Mixed Phone CW DIGI 80 40 30 20 17 15 12 10 6
Confirmed 93 50 76 41 9 49 38 80 27 25 29 22 1

LA8AJA LoTW stats for 2018


Posted: January 23rd, 2018 under Hamradio, LoTW.

Here is my annual LoTW stat post for LA8AJA. These number are from January 21st. I’ve gotten 1 more DXCC confirmed on LoTW since the last report a year ago.  This time I only got almost a 1% increase in confirmed contacts via LoTW.

As I said last year, older QSO’es keep showing up on LoTW. All years, except 2005, has gotten more QSO’es confirmed. I like that very much. It’s just a pity that some stations who are very active, refuses to use LoTW.

Out of my 338 DXCC’s worked, I still need confirmation on LoTW from SV/a, EZ, JD1/m, VK0/m and VP6/d.

I just need two more current DXCC confirmed to have the required 331 confirmed for honor roll.

Yearly statistics:

Year # QSO’es # Confirmed %
1995 348 29 8.33 %
1996 1320 149 11.29 %

Happy new year 2018!


Posted: January 14th, 2018 under DX, Hamradio, Soundclips.

fireworks Happy new DX year everyone. I know it’s a bit late, but now it’s done.

I haven’t posted a radio report in a while, so here it goes. Radio has been slow the least year, but I did work a few contacts.

On August 12th, I worked AL3/AA7CH on 20M. I’m not in the log, so I do not really know which call he did log.

On August 13th, I worked AL3/AA7CH on 30M CW from NA-042. I was in the log this time, and a new iota for me.

On August 26th, I worked NL6/AA7CH on 30M CW from NA-157 for a new iota.

On August 27th, I worked NL6/AA7CH on 20M CW from NA-157.

On October 6th, I worked RI1F on 30M CW from EU-190 for a new iota.

On October 8th, I worked RI1F on 40M CW from EU-190.

On October 15th, I worked H40GC on 40M CW for a new one on 40M.

On October 17th, I worked 3C0L on 30M CW for a new one on 30M.

On October 22nd, I worked F6KOP/p on 17M CW and 20M SSB from iota EU-148. That was a new iota for me.

On October 29th, I worked 3XY3D/p on 17M CW from AF-096 for a new iota.

On November 5th, I worked VK9MA on 30M CW for a new one on 30M. My friend LB8DC was one of the operators on that trip.

On November 19th, I worked EG1ET on 20M CW from EU-077 for a new iota.

That was it for a late report from 2017.
