Here are the latest QSL cards for VK5PAS & VK5MAZ received in the mail during the past couple of weeks.
I received two more QSL cards yesterday in the mail from the Voice of Turkey.
I took part in the Remembrance Day (RD) Contest over the weekend. It also coincided with the very first sleepover of my little grandson Flynn. But thanks to my wife Marija, I got on air whenever possible.
I made a total of 812 QSOs with a claimed score of 974 points. Contacts were made on 20, 40, & 80m SSB.
The majority of my contacts were on the 40m band. The graph below shows my QSOs per band.
The graph below shows my contacts per State/Territory. The significant majority were into Victoria (VK3). It was really pleasing to get so many contacts into Western Australia (VK6).
Saturday afternoon on 20m was a write-off for the contest, as I was swamped with calls from Europe and UK, and worked a bit of a pile-up. Unfortunately, contacts outside of VK, ZL, & P29 do not count for the RD Contest.
The map below shows my contacts, both RD and DX contacts.
The map below shows my long path 20m contacts into Europe/United Kingdom on Saturday afternoon.
The map below shows my contacts around Australia and New Zealand during the contest. There was not a huge amount of ZL participation that I experienced. I logged 20 ZL contacts.
Whilst working VK and ZL on 40m on Saturday evening I was called by a station in Peru in South America. That was a real surprise.
Thanks to everyone who called. Although a long way off the leaders I had a lot of fun.
In the past few days, I received the following QSL cards from KTWR Guam.
Received in yesterday’s mail, a QSL card from the Voice of Turkey, for my reception of their station in March 2022.
Received in yesterday’s mail from Shiokaze – Sea Breeze, a QSL card, letter, & business card regarding my reception of their station in May 2022.
I will be attending the AREG Car Boot Sale with Adam VK2YK. We will be manning a table promoting the WWFF program.
As an official ARRL DXCC card checker, I will also be checking ID for people who wish to get up and going in Logbook Of The World (LOTW), and I will also be checking any QSL cards for ARRL awards, e.g. DXCC.
If you do wish to have ID sighted, or have QSL cards checked, please ensure you have completed the appropriate paperwork.
I received my latest WWFF certificate yesterday via email.
The DXFF50 certificate is issued for having worked WWFF references in 50 different DXCC entities.
Thanks to all of the WWFF Activators and thanks to Swa ON5SWA the Awards Manager.

Yesterday I received the following QSL card from WWCR in the USA for my reception of their station on 5th February 2022 on 5935 kHz.
