Nice party for an afternoon, i used about 4 hrs for this challenge so now i can hunt more DX. Got me some nice ones here too, J28NC on new band, CE2/CX1EXR new dxcc, i think next month challenge will be harder. 😉 Time for 2.nd. Afternoon tea.

My quickest challenge completion in a while now. I went at it more seriously this month after almost not making it last month. I see I used 19 stations from 16 different European countries to complete the challenge in 9 1/2 days. Now I can’t wait till next month’s challenge. These alphabet challenges are one of the most fascinating things that I do in ham radio. Also they help me get some new prefixes like SG0U, SF2014ECC, LZ136LO. And once in a while, although not this month, a new band country. Thanks once again to Matt and Ton. Great work guys.
