2018-10-21 One of my first radio contacts (re)confirmed 1 year ago
From time to time I check whether eQSL has new incoming confirmations for PD4KH contacts. Recently I found one for a contact that goes way back, and it was before I used a linux radio logging program so I did not have the details stored in my logging program. But my website still has those details: Vanavond vanuit de achtertuin contact met PI4HAL via repeater PI3UTR. It turns out PI4HAL decided to stop sending out paper cards and started using eQSL. I guess they uploaded all old logs. I do remember the contact and being nervous about actually talking "on the air" and finding my turn between other callers to that station. This was a trigger for me to check my old logs and make sure I upload things correctly to ARRL Logbook of The World including the few satellite contacts. Oh and I never started using hrdlog as PE4KH. It did not add a lot for me. Update: I found time to re-upload my PD4KH contacts and upload the satellite contacts using the correct procedure for getting satellite contacts into LoTW. This gave me one (1) whole new confirmed satellite contact: the contact with R1AO in August 2014.
