Here's a special one for me... XX9LT via LOTW for a JT65 QSO... this is my DXCC entity # 200 on digital modes. I started with RTTY just over a year and a half ago, then ventured into PSK and JT modes. I mostly only call stations when they are a new country for me. In fact, so far I've only made exactly 300 QSOs on digital modes. That's a QSO and a half per entity, LOL  Grin Grin Grin

That's a nice catch Marvin.  I only have XX9 on SSB.  With declining band conditions I don't think I'll work XX9 again until cycle 25.

I also chase the digital DXCC.  Currently I have 271 worked and 264 confirmed.  I use DX Labs and it will tell me if there's a new country on digital that gets spotted.  Nowadays I don't have many opportunities but with 200 confirmed you still have lots of opportunities.

Thanks Jonathan. I actually thought I worked a pirate. He had a good -7dB signal, but it seemed like there were no other callers at that time but me so I wasn't really sure if it was the real XX9LT. His call sign has been used by slims more than once. The LOTW confirmation was a pleasant surprise.

Dang.  -7db is a pretty strong signal on JT65.  Nice catch!  A lot of my JT65 contacts on the low bands are less than -20db.

Yes, -7dB, that's why I suspected it might had been a pirate!  Grin

The CONDX must have been good.

With sincere gratitude to Gene UA9AB. I received in the mail today 2 gems. Both for QSOs dating back to April of 1989 !!!  Franz Joseph Land from a log entry that I didn't realize was FJL until I typed in the paper logs to electronic log and Uzbekistan from the very next day. This is awesome because I've never been able to work either of these entities since Shocked. It's amazing that both of them are still active and kept their logbooks. If any of you are missing old Qs from the USSR give Gene a shout. His email is good on QRZed .com and he is an avid stamp collector. I'm sending him some nice commemorative stamps as well as a bunch that I've received from around the world. Happy Happy dance time !!  Gary

Gary, congrats! What was the call sign of the FJL station? A friend of mine was recently unsuccessfully trying to get a QSL (via a German manager) from an FJL station from from the late 80s early 90s and I wonder if it could be the same operator.

UA1P** and UK1P** used to be FJL back in the "days" Smiley
I got UA1PAM from Rudolf Island worked 1981. and it shares QSL with UK1PGO (which should be a club station then)

Hi Marvin. That was UA1OT Roman from April 1989. The card says he was on Kheiss Island FJL. I believe he was there for a couple of years. Cheers
