A gorgeously lovely summer means I spent less time on the wireless for these three months, making just over 600 QSOs and working only 80 DXCC entities.
My data / phone / CW ratio is still about the same as earlier in the year and I’ve picked up three new entities on 160m and two on 80m. I’m a very long way away from DXCC on those bands so it’s nothing really to write home about.
I’d normally expect a high number of QSOs during the last weekend of September due to the CQ RTTY contest but unfortunately I was away for most of the weekend. I did still manage a token entry though but nowhere near the size I’d normally like.
Unsurprisingly considering the summer doldrums and the point of the solar cycle, the majority of my QSOs have been to Europe and largely on 20m.
