A Christmas Eve arrival - a QSL card from Nicaragua

This is the last update before Christmas! So if you're reading this on or before December 25th, have a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year and I hope you get plenty of nice DX into the log over the festive period.

The postman had one more delivery for me before Christmas. He arrived this morning, Christmas Eve, with a card from Nicaragua. The station worked was H74LEON, and the card confirmed QSOs on 20m CW, 17m CW and 30m CW. Nicaragua (YN) is a new country for me, bringing my total confirmed by paper QSL to 51.

Last week I received a beautiful card from 5V7TT, the Dxpedition to Togo in Africa. I am delighted to report that I have now confirmed Togo on 40m SSB, 30m CW, 17m CW and SSB, 15m CW and SSB, 12m CW and SSB and 10m SSB.

The photo above shows me with these two nice cards. The picture was taken by my first harmonic, who is ten years old, and a budding Short Wave Listener. I must go now - I have to make sure the antennas don't get in the way of Santa and Rudolph landing on the roof.

Ho ho ho . . .


  1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well Anthony.

  2. Hi Anthony, great QSL cards, you look very happy.
    Merry Christmas & Happy 2011 to you and yours.
    73, Bas
