Dave, Can you please answer me a question?  I must have 1,000 QSL cards from Japan and they all have a JCC#.  Your QRZ page says you have JCC and JCG awards.

What exactly is a JCC# and where can I find out what the various awards are?  Also, what is a JCG award?  I have not come accross JCG numbers.

73,

Chris,  Not to go off topic, but JCC = Japan Century Cities and JCG = Japan Century Guns.  JCC and JCG is sort of like county hunting in the USA.  "Guns" are like townships - a region that doesn't meet the requirements of a city.  Basically, you can break JA down into call areas, then prefectures (states), then cities/guns.  Many in JA chase JCC/JCG, I can hear them on 80/40m nightly, some of the rarer ones generate big pileups.  I get a ton of JA cards, so I can put them to good use, and I think many of the JA ops appreciate my interest in their awards which results in more contest QSOs for me.

Fernando, I've yet to hear you.
I've been hearing Sergei in Chad around 0630z on 20m CW working Europe. He then seems to disappear to SSB just as the CW signal comes up!
I will be patient, and hope to work you soon for ATNO, and last of the "T's"!
73 and stay safe,

Good signals from Africa this morning.  I worked TZ6BB and J5UAP within a few minutes. Both for band/mode fills.  Both QSOs on CW.

Yes, I just worked J5UAP on 15 CW. I have not read about extreme violence in Guinea-Bissau but I am trying to work as many bandfills as possible from most parts of Africa.  J5UAP has been to J5 before and he uses LoTW.

Congrats, Gene!

Today I've worked TZ6BB at 1700z on 12m CW and few hours later I got LOTW confirmation. Outstanding!

Good copy 20m LP working JA until 0830z.
Please listen a few minutes for VK/ZL when you come up tomorrow Fernando.
A JA or EU pile on western Africa is very tough to crack from this part of the world.
I'm having a day off work tomorrow and will be listening for you!

Just got the LoTW confirmation an hour after the 40M QSO--my 2nd ATNO this year with 100W and a wire antenna. Also #99 towards my 40M DXCC Grin

Thanks to Fernando's kind consideration, I now have TZ off my ATNO list!
And the quick LotW QSL was so good to see on the screen the next morning!

He was on 20m this afternoon.  The lid fest was so bad that I turned the radio off for the night.  Pathetic.

Well, I refused to allow the lid-fest to chase me away.  I persevered and got him.  Great op!  And a very good signal this afternoon on 20 CW.

While I don't need Mali for an ATNO, it could be nice to get some band fills. I have heard TZ6BB on a few bands but have been too busy getting prepared for the arrival of a 'harmonic' in just a few weeks..

Well if that is the case then you should work him now as opposed to after the arrival of the harmonic, as you won't find time then Wink  Congratulations!

I have three harmonics... Congratulations!!!!  You will still have time, but you will have to choose between sleep and radio.  Also learn early how to feed the baby while operating cw, it was a real lifesaver for me.

Definitely have to give thanks to TZ6BB as I made it into his log the other day, long path.  I got lucky and snuck in just before the JA zombie packet pileup guys descended on him in a fury.  Hopefully I wasn't too aggressive calling but I knew what was coming.  He had a really good signal here - especially for 100W - solid copy.

Hope everyone else has a shot who needs him.
