Looking back over my records for the past three years, April is always one of the quieter months of the year and it’s no exception in 2013. I was hoping for a few more QSOs over the months but over 700 is still a good total.
In April I worked five new entities, these were Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Tuvalu, Mozambique, Ogasawara and Tokelau Islands. Sadly I missed out on the 5W0M DXpedition because although they were a good signal, I just couldn’t get through the pileup.
QSOs made: 706
DXCC entities worked: 95
New DXCC entities worked: 5
Total DXCC worked: 253
Total DXCC confirmed using LoTW: 231
Total DXCC confirmed using LoTW/QSL cards: 245
