2014 QSO A Day Challenge–50% Complete
I’m late in getting this update published. I was on vacation (staycation at home) as June ended and July began. This past week was my first week back and I was swamped at work. But all is on track and I’ve completed at least one QSO each and every day in 2014 and the challenge is well over 50% complete.
In addition, to keeping my QSO per day streak alive…I’ve also managed to add at least one new DX entity each month in 2014. June was no exception with the addition of Saint Lucia. This makes 10 new DX entities added to my log this year.
As I started with my May update, my progress in the 2014 ARRL Centennial QSO Party continues to progress. The numbers below are as of mid July.
Centennial Points Score: 9,049
Total QSO’s: 1,539
Rank (All): 1,230
Rank (Colorado): 14th
The QSO breakdown for June is as follows:

very cool Jerry! Fantastic work.
Looks like my QRP activities are on hold for a short time, as my grandson accidently knocked over my MP-1 portable vertical. It will take a month to save up for a new one.
Keep it up Jerry. I still miss a day here and there. But as you said, gfet back to it and then go for a Q a day. I was QRV as a W1AW/9 station and I have to say, between that and Field Day, I got pretty burnt out. I missed a few days and even had difficulty wanting to work WRTC stations.
Need a new PARP to get back into the groove.
No pressure man, as I know that is the last thing I need, too.
Ack, Ron! That’s a drag. Sorry to hear about the vertical. I hope the pennies for the replacement add up quickly!
