This is what my EI2KC eQSL inbox looked like just a few minutes ago. In there are AG eQSLs for two new countries - Qatar (A71) and Senegal (6W). That brings me to a total of 49 AG countries on eQSL. Not bad for a newbie I'd say.
Update: I worked another new country today. I nabbed Brunei on 20M CW, which wasn't bad considering it was 18:21 here and the band is not usually open to the Far East at this time. I worked V85SS just now on 14.002 working a split on 14.004. He gave me 599. Thanks indeed!! I also grabbed E21EJC on 17M USB in Thailand. And I got T77C in San Marino on both CW and SSB on 17 metres. I got 7Z1HL in Saudi Arabia on 15m CW.
I haven't been doing a huge amount of radio this week. I felt a bit burned out with everything that was going on (I have just finished making a documentary about The High Man) and felt that radio was taking over things a bit so I haven't worked much this week really. But that's not a bad thing. I'm still doing plenty of 2m and I intend to "pick off" a bit of DX on the HF bands but I just won't be sitting in front of the radio 24/7 that's all.
The number of people who've been commenting on my new callsign is incredible. Almost everyone I've spoken to think it's a great callsign. It's nice and short and easy to say, but it's particularly easy to send on CW. It's actually rhythmic too. I have to admit that I have found it a million times easier to send than my old callsign EI8GHB. EI2 is good but EI2KC is very good! I was speaking to my friend Brian (EI4KC) this morning and he's thoroughly enjoying the CW too. Great stuff. He had a bit of trouble with his Antron - it broke - so he will be buying a new one. A couple of operators in MI land across the border had damage to their antennas from the snow a few days ago but thankfully it hasn't kept any of them off the bands!
73 for now.
