posted Mar 13, 2012, 7:01 AM by Masahiro Kitagawa

LoTW DXCC status as of 13 March 2012 is as follows: 160m becomes 96. Four more are needed!
I will do summertime DX efforts on 160m, seeking for Oceania, South America and Africa.

DM6LN, Norman, operated JH3PRR on 6th March as a guest operator. After that we visited Rokko Garden Terrace and enjoyed the panoramic night view of Kobe and Osaka. He has been studying robotics for six months at the graduate school of engineering, Osaka University and will return to his country at the end of March.

WAS a week after ARRL DX CW

Here is my WAS status a week after ARRL DX CW. The increments are: 9 on 80m, 2 on 40m, 7 on 15m, 2 on 10m. Yes, I've completed 10m WAS! The last one was ND. 20m is waiting for SD. I wish I can complete 20m, 40m, and 15m in ARRL DX SSB. 80m and 160m will take looooong time.
ARRL DX CW 一週間後のLoTW WASです。10mのWASが本日完成しました!最後はNDでした。20mはSDが残ってます。20m, 40m, 15mは来週末のARRL DX SSBで完成したい。でも、80mと160mはまだ何年もかかりそうです。

Here is my LoTW WAS status as of TUE 21 Feb. 2012, just two days after ARRL International DX contest CW.
There are good increase on 80m and 15m. However there is no single band WAS completion yet.

ARRL International DX contest CW 2012

This is my first serious all-band effort in ARRL International DX contest from the current QTH at Mt.Rokko.
The result is as follows:
 BAND   QSO S/P
--------------------
  160     3   3 
   80   143  36
   40   459  50
   20   390  52
   15   530  53
   10   205  39
----------------------------------
TOTAL  1730 233
===================
 TOTAL SCORE : 1 209 270

There were lots of strategic mistakes. The most serious one is that I ran on 15m in the first evening. I should have run on 10m instead.
I have enjoyed the contest and learnt a lot. Thank you all for calling me or picking me up. See you in ARRL Int'l DX contest SSB very soon.

ARRL DXコンテストCWの速報です。いろいろ失敗もありましたが大いに楽しめました。課題が分かったので、来年に向けてスコアアップにつながる局作りを目指します。
