Although I would like to spend more time on the VHF+ bands, it seems that I am often contesting on HF these days. I have made around 15,000 contacts as M0BPQ with participation in the RSGB club championships really skewing my QSO totals. The graph below gives a breakdown per band (data produced on 18 November 20012):
On HF I am a casual DXCC chaser. I have worked 231 DXCC countries using wire antennas and never more than 100w from home. I have subscribed to clublog which generates some interesting statistics of my activity inducing DXCC activity in each calendar year and timelines. My recent operations from G0OUR with a big HF yagi and PA have shown me what it is like to be on the right end of a decent set up!
On 6m, I have worked 97 DXCC and 360 squares. I need to look at working more tropo and AU on 6m to fill in the close squares. I am usually on higher bands when TR or AU is about. A European map is shown below.
On 4m, I have worked 17 DXCC (all /p) and 35 squares. Activity from unworked squares is low. 2006 saw four new squares in CT and SV, and GJ in 2007 (thanks GJ3TCU) and 2008 OK and I, but I din't have a single QSO on 4m in 2009 or 2010 so have missed out on several new DXCCs. 2012 brought SP, SV5, SV9 YO and X-band to the Ukraine. I need to spend some time on 4m as I missed all the EA countries. In the next Au I will be looking for the folks in northern GM! The European map is shown below.
On 2m, I have worked 42 DXCC and 183 squares. I really start to need to work more MS to fill in the gaps, although SpE gave me some new ones, including EA9 in 2006. I was QRT on 2m for most of 2007, but my return to 2m from home brought me a couple of new sqaures in 2008 via MS. 2009 brought only one SpE opening which included one new country (LZ) and several new squares. There were lots of TR openings in 2012.
On 70cm, I have worked 17 DXCC and 62 squares. I find activity on 70cm to be very low and it is difficult to work even the closest squares in France as no one is on! I was pleased to work three new squares in 2012 in the Pyrenees. Still lots more to do! The European map is shown below.
