2012 Challenge–Are we there yet?

I have good news and I have bad news.  The good news, with less than 60 days to go, I’m happy to report I’ve managed a QSO per day for over 300 consecutive days this year.   The bad news, my streak of working one new DX entity each month has come to an end.  However, the 2012 challenge was not about working a new DX entity each month.  That was just simply a product of being more active in the shack.  I’m focused to continue to push and complete my 2012 Challenge.   


The QSO breakdown for October is as follows:

Number QSO’s




2m FM  

Additional notes of interest:

DX Stations Worked in October – 8

New DX Entities in October – 0

Total QSO’s for 2012 – 1337

Total consecutive QSO days – 305

Days left in 2012 – 61

Until next time…
