This is the first month of the year where my QSO total is lower than the same month in 2011 and I put that largely down to the fact that I’ve been very busy at work this month and have had a number of late evenings and weekends where I’ve been working so my time on the wireless has been limited. Despite that though, I’ve managed to work four new DXCC entities this month and they are the Maldives, the Bahamas, St. Peter & St. Paul Rocks and Lesotho.
The QSL cards I submitted for checking at the RSGB Convention in October have been added to the system and so my LoTW total of confirmed countries has gone up since my last statistics post. I’ve applied for my 200 DXCC endorsement, for new certificates for 20m and Digital and I expect to have an additional certificate under my belt by the end of the year.
