VE7SA IOTA NA-036 in the mail !

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 !

LA/DM2AUJ IOTA EU-076, CT1BQH/P IOTA EU-167 & 10 new ones on 160M...

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).

ZL7G Chatam Island : the chase !

 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 !
