New eQSL design available

I just finished my eQSL design for the EX/HB9DUR operations.

This is the first time ever I have a customized digital QSL.

I hope you enjoy it!

EX/HB9DUR Bishkek final report and stats

Thanks to my host, EX8MAT George, I was able to enjoy also this year more than 2000 QSO on shortwave in my preferred mode SSB by using his station.

  • Here you can check if you are in the log
  • Here the spots on the DX Summit

I have published some statistics using the SH5 program and would like to summarize below the activity with some tables and pictures.

I operate approximatively 21.5 hours in  3 days, collecting 2080 QSO, so achieving an average rate of 100/ hr and a max of 190/hr and max 4 QSO/min. I am quite happy with it considering not being in contest.FullSizeRender

Hourly QSO numbers

I am considering returning in the country for further activity also in new modes and bands as I want to support the HAM community in EX .

Thank you for those contacted me and the QSL policy is ruled on my page. Any comment is appreciated.



EX/HB9DUR intermediate report #2

The second leg of my activity on HF bands led to have logged 640 QSO in 6.5hrs of activity, for a total of almost 2100 QSO as per attached picture. 
Conditions have been poorer compared to the previous weekend. This time I have logged 4 US stations, the rest is most EU, UA, and JA. No activity on 80m and 160m.


  • Eqsl updated
  • Clublog updated
  • Lotw after 10th of January

I am not sure if I will be qrv again as the 9th I am going to fly back home and till then I am rather busy with family commitments.

More updates on EX ham radio in general later on, after a meeting with local OM tomorrow.
