One hundred, one hundred, one hundred!

100. Three simple digits. This week 100 has been popping up all over the place.

100 DXCC entities worked. It has taken me from my first HF contact with VK2NZ in April 2006 to QSO number 2284 today when I worked CR3L to work 100 DXCC entities. Now I need to confirm them all via either QSL cards or Log Book Of The World and I can get a DXCC certificate to put on the wall. Details of my worked entities are at

BM100 worked today. As I drew close to 100 DXCC entities I worked the special event station BM100 from Taiwan on SSB.

BV100 QSL cards arrived last Tuesday. A surprise in the post was four QSL cards from BV100 who I had worked in late September on PSK31. I had mailed off an Internal Reply Coupon and one QSL card not long after the QSO and I was pleasantly surprised to get four different cards back. Very generous indeed.

VK100ARV activation this Tuesday. This Tuesday 1 November is the start of 1 month activation for VK100ARV celebrating 100 years of Amateur Radio Victoria. I’m a lucky enough to be in the first activation group with other members of the SRESU from the new JOTA station, VK3SCG, at Gilwell Park. I’m hoping for lots of contacts and maybe even a pile up or two.

A special QSL card is being printed by Amateur Radio Victoria to commemorate the event and contacts with VK100ARV are worth 10 points toward the ARV Centenary Award.
