2022 in amateur radio for me / 2023-01-21

2023-01-21 2022 in amateur radio for me
QSO count for PE4KH until December 2022 Time for an overview of what happened in amateur radio in 2022 for me. Like previous years I will look back at the plans and what happened. Looking back at Closing 2021 in amateur radio the following results are clear:
  • The morse exam finally happened and I passed it.
  • More morse contacts in contests and in general
  • 18 new countries/entities in the log
  • More countries/entities in morse in the log
  • Satellite contacts: none
  • Used the improving propagation
The plans for 2023:
  • Try to get more countries/entities, especially in morse. I am working towards DXCC in morse: 100 entities confirmed.
And one thing is both a result of 2022 and an item for 2023: I ordered a new radio: a Yaesu FT-911A, HF, VHF, UHF all mode at the end of 2022 and it was delivered last week. That will be a separate post.

More detailed statistics over 2022

Always nice to look at the more detailed statistics of my log.

By month

Months with morse contests are a new influence on my yearly statistics. May had the King of Spain CW contest and the CQ WPX CW contest, July had the IARU-HF contest, November the LZ-DX contest and the CQ-WW DX CW contest. At the same time the digital contests count too, in January the UBA PSK63 contest and in April the EA RTTY contest.

By band

A clear influence of having access to the 80 meter band (and 160 meter band) via the remote station, mostly used for the WRTC 2022 award. I also tried to get new contacts on 17 meter as propagation allows for contacts in that band during the day.
+------+-----+
| band | cnt |
+------+-----+
| 160M |   1 |
| 80M  |  23 |
| 40M  | 486 |
| 30M  |   4 |
| 20M  | 842 |
| 17M  | 132 |
| 15M  | 193 |
| 12M  |   2 |
| 10M  | 263 |
| 2M   |  10 |
| 70CM |   1 |
+------+-----+

By mode

Here the influence of the morse training and morse contesting is showing clearly. 44% of the total contacts is in morse. A lot of those are contest contacts so they are ultra short.
+-------+-----+
| mode  | cnt |
+-------+-----+
| PSK   |   1 |
| FT4   |  15 |
| SSB   |  62 |
| PSK63 |  74 |
| RTTY  | 367 |
| FT8   | 575 |
| CW    | 863 |
