I only have 4000 QSO's in my log since I became a ham in 1973. Those 4000 Q's contain:

8BDXCC
1640 DXCC Challenge Band Mode Slots
328 mixed entities

I guess these stats show that most of what I have done is chase after DX, which has been during the last 10 years. With all of my time in front of the radio - the majority of my time is spent listening, and I was totally off the air from 1977 - 2001.

How about you?

73,

Some of us are (or were) active contesters.  That skews the numbers the other direction.  I have more QSOs with Japan than you have in your log!  Shocked

Ditto.  The contesting equation screws up your stats.

Ditto ditto. I suspect that 95+% of my QSOs are from contests, domestic and DX. Then again, the main reason I (and many others) got into contesting was to jack-up my DXCC count.

Too many to count....especially over a 25 year period.....wish I had the time to determine, however, I would like to try for a 40 meter DXCC as next to 20 15 and 10, it has become one of my favorite DX bands...even before the SSB/phone sub-band changes....love 40 meter cw....it's one of the things that gets me through the horrid winter months.....

Interesting…… Really shows me that I am a “casual” DXer at best, with only 1544 QSOs since February of 2006, when I started chasing DX.  I seldom get on the air anymore, unless its for a “New One”.  Totals are as follows: worked/confirmed

Mixed DXCC:  296/295

CW DXCC:  243/233

Phone DXCC: 260/258

Mixed 80M: 25/22
Mixed 40M: 75/62
Mixed 30M: 75/59
Mixed 20M: 271/268
Mixed 17M: 129/114
Mixed 15M: 131/115
Mixed 12M: 38/28
Mixed 10M: 51/40

I have mixed WAS and WAZ as well.

Since I now have no antenna for 80, 5BDXCC is going to be a long time coming.  I really do need to work some band fills tho……… I have not had the radio on since ST0R shut down.

DXing almost exclusively since October 1977.  Periods of inactivity from 83-89 and 92-96.  Until 2004 I was pretty casual and did not become obsessed with the count until I got my TS570S in April of that year.  Since then, I use every news sheet and operating tip I can so that my 4-5 hours per week on the air are solely focused on THE HUNT!  DX IS!

6500 QSO's

283/268. 

Enough for 9BDXCC except on 12 meters (9 countries to go) and 160 (just got started, 67/42 there).  Long way from Honor Roll, but I just turned 47 so I have some time.  Plus what happens when I get there?

These stats are probably the most interesting that I've seen - tells an interesting story of how people spend their time on air and in the "pursuit" of DX.

Vlad (SU9VB) uploads to LOTW frequently. Smiley He seems to have gotten away from pure paper logs.
