It’s All in the Cards! QSL Cards from DXCC Entities on the Air in February

OnAllBands is rounding out our QSL card posts for the month with a brief look at several entities that will be active in February, along with QSL cards from the team of avid DXers at DX Engineering. Stay tuned because in a few weeks we’ll be featuring cards from two prominent DX Engineering-sponsored DXpeditions in February:

Temotu Province

The DX Engineering-sponsored H40WA Temotu Province DXpedition was postponed in November and rescheduled to run from February 22 to March 7. That’s good news for chasers hoping to capture this 43rd ranked Most-Wanted DXCC Entity per Clublog (as of January). Get up-to-date details at the DXpedition’s Facebook page.

As an equipment sponsor for H40WA, DX Engineering provided the DXpedition with the following:

St. Kitts and Nevis

K1ZN as V44/K1ZN is scheduled to activate St. Kitts and Nevis from February 25 to March 4. As of January, St. Kitts and Nevis, a two-island country located in the West Indies’ Leeward Islands chain, ranked as the 183rd Most Wanted DXCC entity. Tom, KB8UUZ, DX Engineering technical writer, received this QSL card from V47JA in St. Kitts—the smallest sovereign state in the Western Hemisphere in both area (101 square miles) and population (47,600).

Solomon Islands

H44MS by DL2GAC is scheduled to be active from February 10-28 on HF in SSB and FT8. George, K3GP, DX Engineering customer/technical support specialist, received this card from the H40XX DXpedition from the Temotu Province (formerly Santa Cruz Islands), the easternmost province of the Solomon Islands, in 2002 on 15M CW. The Solomon Islands—six major islands and 900 smaller ones in the South Pacific Ocean, was the 76th Most-Wanted DXCC Entity per Clublog as of January.


K6VHF, as 4L/K6VHF, plans to be active from Rustavi, a city in southeast Georgia, from February 10-18. As of January, Georgia was the 253rd Most-Wanted DXCC Entity per Clublog. Here are a few QSL cards from Georgia provided by the team at DX Engineering.

Editor’s Note: Every month, DX Engineering features QSL cards from our team members’ personal collections. To highlight upcoming DXpeditions, we’ll be displaying a few of our favorite cards along with details about what it took to make these contacts. We’re excited to share some of the special cards pulled from the thousands we’ve received over the years. We look forward to seeing your cards as well!
