|5 Band DXCC certificate no 8803|
The award became possible only after I started operating in JT65 mode, developed by Joe Taylor, K1JT. JT65 allows operation in the presence of interference. However a critical factor was the variety of DXCC entities that show up daily on the JT65 band segments, especially in the early morning houts (03:00-05:00 local time). Within a few days I managed to log and confirm using LoTW eight entities: PY, ZS, YB, LU, TG, RI1ANO, CU and 5Z4. I also worked TF but I have only a paper QSL card.
Next target: DXCC on 50 MHz (6 m). In the past few days during a series of good sporadic openings I worked TA and GI, geting my total to 93 entities (92 confirmed).
