DXCC Statistics - July '20 Update

After a couple of years, it was time to update my DXCC Statistics for my
current (SV5DKL) and my old (SV1DKL) callsigns.

Below are my cumulative, LoTW only, confirmed DXCC Statistics, as of 
13 July 2020:

While my SV1DKL totals haven't improved significanty, I've had better results
with my SV5DKL call. Taking into account also my paper QSL cards, DXCC 
Challenge points are 2565 as of today. 

I have to point out, that my SV5DKL DXCC Challenge points include a mere
23 points of FT8 or FT4 contacts, that I don't consider valid anyway, due to the
inhuman & purely pointless nature of these modes, and therefore, am not 
interested in claiming them as credits for my DXCC totals.

I proudly confirm that all my awarded DXCC credits until today, come from 
QSOs made in SSB, CW and RTTY.

It's a really hard way onwards, aiming for DXCC HR and, even worse, DeSoto

DARC's Europa Diplom Honor Roll has become kind of an institution for me, so I
try every year to reach a high result to compete with the "usual suspects" in Germany.

Here's what I've got for 2018:

See you in the final top rankings ;-)
