Just as I did last month, I want to briefly provide an update on my 2012 Challenge. My 2012 challenge is a QSO a day for each day in the calendar year. I’m officially two months in and still successful.
I wouldn’t say this is proving to be a difficult project. But I do have a lot going on both in the hobby of amateur radio and outside. As I’ve recently discussed in my blog, I’m kicking the new basement ham shack, podcast studio, home office and just general man-cave project into high gear. After working for 8 hours hanging sheetrock, I really just want to crash…but I also want to get that contact in. In one example, the contact was a new DX entity of Canary Island. So I suppose it was very much worth it and I’ve gotta admit the excitement caused the aching bones to feel better.
My QSO count for the month of February was significantly lower than in January by almost half. While I chased a few special event stations, I didn’t do any contesting during the month and that shows in my totals. But of course the 2012 challenge is a QSO a Day.
The breakdown is as follows:
Additional notes of interest:
DX Stations Worked – 3
New DX Entities – 1
Total QSO’s for 2012 – 316
Total consecutive QSO days – 60
Days left in 2012 – 306
Until next time…
