SV5DKL DXCC Challenge score surpasses 2000 mark

Back in April 2014, in this post, when I had reached 1800 points in my DXCC Challenge score for my SV5DKL callsign, with LotW confirmations only, I had set the next target to be the 2000 mark.

Well, it took me just over a year, but yesterday I made it over the 2000 points, thanks to the E30FB log, which was uploaded to LotW and gave me 5 new band points.

Below is my current DXCC Challenge standing (I remind you, with LotW confirmations only), on May 1st, 2015:

As LotW has attracted more and more operators, confirmations are coming in fast. Traditional paper QSLing, of course, will never die, but speed and simplicity of LotW is far beyond comparison for all those award hunters out there.

My sole request to LotW officials would be to incorporate more awards, like WAZ, IOTA, etc. since this would make LotW the must-have tool of every DXer worldwide.

As far as my DXCC and DXCC Challenge totals are concerned, according to my logbook program statistics, including paper QSL confirmations, as of May 1st, 2015, these are as follows:

DXCC entities worked/confirmed: 319 / 314
DXCC Challenge points worked / confirmed: 2431 / 2045

No targets will be set from now on regarding DXCC Challenge program. Every new confirmation will be welcome !!
