August, September & October in the log...

Hi all, sorry I'm very late with post updates but not many interesting things logged so far here...
I didn't add any new one on 50MHz during this season. 
My chase is focused on IOTA, and, luckily, there were some new ones :
- In August, I worked RT65KI from IOTA AS-065

- In September, I worked RI0B from IOTA AS-121, AS-104 & AS-087

- In october, I worked KP4/EI9FBB from IOTA NA-249 NEW !

This bringged me to a total of 593 worked islands by the end of October.

New Clublog matches also appeared during these months with :
- 7V9A from IOTA AF-094
- PX8Z from IOTA SA-060
- V6J from IOTA OC-254
- YB4IR/8 from OC-274 
This bringged me to a total of 560 confirmed islands by the end of October.

It's already winter season coming... time flies !

June & July's in the log...

Hi all, another report of my recent activities on the air... :)
Apart the previous June posts on 50MHz contacts, I could log ES0UG/8 from IOTA EU-178 on 20M CW : I already worked this IOTA in 2012 but never received any confirmation since the time. 
Thanks to Uwe, it was quickly confirmed (in the month) with a Clublog Matching !
I also could work again Craig VK5CE/6 this time from IOTA OC-170 but it was the last time I could hear him, no more island from his VK IOTA Tour...

 In the beginning of July, it was time for me to add an ATNO thanks to KH1/KH7Z Baker & Howland Islands IOTA OC-089, worked on 20M CW : it is my 323rd worked DXCC ! It was confirmed on LotW one month later : it is my 323rd confirmed DXCC too...

Later, 7V9A IOTA AF-094 was worked on 20M SSB, V6J Federal States of Micronesia IOTA OC-254 logged on 20M CW & 9K2NO was worked on 6M CW (new slot).

Then it was already the IOTA CONTEST 2018 !
I looked for new/not yet confirmed references only, and logged 10 islands thanks to :
- PX8Z IOTA SA-060
- PW7I IOTA SA-046
- II3Y IOTA EU-130
- SF2X/P IOTA EU-135
- BW9W IOTA AS-155
- ZV5O IOTA SA-047
- PS1S IOTA SA-077
This bringed my IOTA score to 588 worked islands !

VK5CE/6 IOTA OC-140 in the log & 5 new confirmed islands...

Hi, yesterday I could log Craig VK5CE/6 from IOTA OC-140 Thevenard Island on 20M SSB LP (I was barefoot 100W) : this is my 575th worked island !
I didn't hear him on previous OC-164 & 199, so I hope to work him on the next IOTAs he plans to activate in this new trip...

A long time I couldn't log in IOTA-World (you need to get a new password in Clublog -> Settings -> App Passwords) and finally 5 new IOTAs confirmed, bringing my score to 549 confirmed IOTAs !
