Summary of 2015

Our mission in 2015 was to improve our station capabilities especially the bands covered and to increase active hours. The mission is said to be completed at the end of year 2105 and number of QSOs has been reached to 36821. As published, we supported big HF projects such as Goncasuyu Project, IARU Head Quarter Activity, and 90th year Jubilee of IARU. We have new proactive members within 2015. Especially Mehmet (TA5FA) worked in Goncasuyu partially as an individual and as a TeamPapa member. For a fair statistics, we excluded individual supports of new members to the projects. Any activity is said to be TeamPapa performance if the operator is a team member and the activity is announced as a Team Papa activity before. Therefore the statistics below indicates the team performance rather than the project data.

Bands and Modes

The most worked bands are 20m and 15m sililar to 2014 statistics while week propogation on 10m among the year and high local QRM caused relatively less activity. Worked modes are SSB (68%) and CW (32%). Band and mode distribution in 2015 is given at the table below.

Contests and Activities

One of the significant activities of 2015 was the Jubilee for 90th anniversary of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) with TC90IARU callsign and 15134 total QSOs. We run for the ARRL-10 contest with TC90IARU callsign.

Goncasuyu Project was another big activity with 8781 QSOs recorded. We use mostly the TC100GP callsign at the project and joined the contests MMC and RDXC with this callsign.

We have worked as a country head quarter in the IARU-HF contest with the callsign TC3HQ in 2015. This was a multi-station activity with 3 seperate stations in Izmir and Canakkale.
