February & March's in the log...

Hi all, some news after a long time !
Nothing interesting at the moment and poor conditions made I didn't make any contact since February 23rd...
I was looking to 4B4B but NIL at my possible free time.
In February so, I managed to work the Z60A team on 9 slots for a "new" DXCC


I worked 4L/TA7OF on 20M RTTY for a new mode, C81G & C8X from IOTA AF-061 for a new island (#543), EK + CX + SU + T7 in FT8, and PZ5RA Ramon from Suriname on 160M CW (#102) 


That's all, waiting for some more excitation ^^ !

January's in the log...

Hi all, here's my January report !
A lot of QSOs on FT8, I have to admit it was pleasant to work all "usual" countries in a new mode, even if I was more looking for new ones on Top Band when I decided to jump in... I am actually at 186 worked DXCCs in digital modes (RTTY + FT8), that is not bad...
About the rest, I worked N5PHT on 20M CW from IOTA NA-143 Galveston Island & C8X + C81G from IOTA AF-061, they are my 567th & 568th worked islands...

On Top Band, I could log FG8OJ from Guadeloupe, CU3EQ from Azores on FT8 & E31A Eritrea, C6AGU from Bahamas, ZC4A UK Bases on Cyprus, P4/DL4MM Aruba, 3V8CB Tunisia and Z33C Macedonia on CW, which permitted me to reach the 100 worked DXCCs on 160M !
8 more to confirm now and I'll reach the "10B-DXCC"... 
End January Kosovo finally entered the DXCC list, I'm actually trying to work them when time permits (17M-20M-30M CW + 20M SSB), it is my 322nd worked DXCC !
