Tuvalu (T2C) contacts confirmed on LoTW from October 2023

I was delighted to see five of my contacts with Tuvalu (T2C) confirmed this morning on the Logbook of the World (LoTW).  The contacts covered a distance of 8,011 km (4,978 miles). These five DX contacts were made in October of 2023.  I now have Tuvalu confirmed on 10M, 15M, 17M, 20M, and 30M.  These move me closer to earning the DXCC Challenge award by bringing my total to 860 confirmed contacts.

Tuvalu (formerly known as the Ellice Islands) is an island country in the Polynesian subregion of Oceania in the Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and Australia. It lies east-northeast of the Santa Cruz Islands, northeast of Vanuatu, southeast of Nauru, south of Kiribati, west of Tokelau, northwest of Samoa and Wallis and Futuna, and north of Fiji.

Tuvalu is composed of three reef islands and six atolls.  Tuvalu had a population of 10,645 in 2017, making it the second-least populous country in the world, behind Vatican City. Its total land area is 26 square kilometers (10 sq mi).

Good DX and 73, NJ2X
