Hi, today I received VE7SA QSL from IOTA NA-036, confirming an old 12M SSB QSO in 2011. I never received back Bruce QSL via Bureau ("lost in the system") and he kindly sent me a direct, helping me to confirm my 470th IOTA, thanks a lot !

Hi, all is in the title . I recently received 2 directs from old IOTA activities, courtesy of DM2AUJ Wolfgang and CT1BQH Joao... I sent some e-mails about my "old" worked & not yet confirmed islands last week, and some days later I had the good surprise to find them in the mailbox ! I know 2 others IOTA QSLs which should arrive soon but these ones were not planned... THANK YOU ! - CT1BQH/P (CR6R) IOTA EU-167 (2011) :
- LA/DM2AUJ IOTA EU-076 (2008) :
Low bands, and especially Top Band, were interesting these past evenings / nights : I could log 10 "new ones" on 160M thanks to OG3077F, HB9CVQ, IS0HQJ, OY1CT, ZD8W, HB0/DL5SE, OE6JTD, EI3KI, MI0BPB & 4K6FO... all in CW (#49 to #59). KP2Q from British Virgin Islands was also worked on 80M CW (#142).
Hi all, it's been a long long time I didn't write any bill on the blog ! Time flies, summer was busy out of the shack, here we are... End of year season started again, with some interesting DX-Peditions to come, and ZL7G was the first for me, as Chatam Island was only worked & confirmed on 20M & 40M CW ! Without any pressure, I waited the end of their activity to jump in the chase in order to add some new bands and modes, and so, in 24H (Nov. 7th to 8th), I could work them on 17M CW (new band), 20M CW + SSB (new mode), 30M CW (new band) + RTTY (new mode), 40M CW & 80M CW (new band) !
Now waiting for a next activity from Chatam in order to work the higher bands (10M-12M-15M) missing... Thanks to the team for their super job and automatic LotW upload, FB !
Hi all, time flies, nothing actually interesting for me on the bands but some surprises in the mailbox thanks to FJ/W6JKV from St Barthelemy (confirmed DXCC #94 on 50MHz !) & JM1IGJ from Japan confirming our QSOs on 6M !! Thanks guys !
Hi, great openings yesterday on 6M, especially with NA and short skip ! It started in the morning with IS0UAI from JN40 coming here very strong, then in the afternoon beginning I could work EA1HNP from IN53, EB1DJ & EA1QS from IN52 : 2 new squares and it was the very first time I hear NW Spain on 6 ! All QSOs in SSB.
One hour later, NA sporadic : I send some CQ in CW and KZ4RR from FM30 and K5EK from EL29 gave me another 2 new squares...
Off all the afternoon, I am back in the evening and hear F6IRS from JN38 in QSO (short skip sporadic), I wait for the end of his QSO and we QSY a little up, another new square ! And then quickly some others French stations F5TVG/P (long time Franck !!), F6GCP, F1UMO, F1EBN, F1DLJ, F4ALP, F1IEO... many ON, PA, all UK (thanks EI7CC long time also !), HB0CC from Liechtenstein giving me my 101st worked DXCC on the Magic Band : let's go for 108 stations in 1h 04min top chrono ! ^^ All QSOs in SSB again...
