Rising number of amateur radio contacts / 2017-02-12

2017-02-12 Rising number of amateur radio contacts7 months ago
I noticed recently the number of radio contacts made by my new callsign PE4KH which I started using in March 2016 was getting close to the number of radio contacts made by my previous callsign PD4KH between March 2013 and March 2016. A typical rise in contacts, mostly due to my skills improving and participating in contests. So I wanted to view the rise per month and did some searching how to ask the cqrlog databases and plot the results.

Oh, and now PE4KH has more contacts after a few new contacts logged in PSK31 mode on the 20 meter band today.

For PD4KH:

And after massaging the data in gnuplot for a bit I had a nice graph. QSL count plot
