*The best achievement of Z35M: 43.300 QSOs in one year

In 2001, Vlado decided to run personal QSO Marathon with the aim of seeing how many QSOs (radio contacts) can be made in one year, using only home station and personal callsign, Z35M. The final result after 12 months of operation was 43.300 QSOs ! This, as far as could be determined, is the European one-year QSO record (single operator, one year, one call sign) and third best in the world. The better known results are those of VP6BR (a DX-pedition from Pitcairn Island), operated by OH2BR in 2000, with 56.059 QSOs, and KV4AA (SK), who made 48.100 QSOs in 1978 from Virgin Islands. This operation was not a DXpedition, and that the Republic of Macedonia, Z3 is not listed among the 100 most wanted DXCC entities. At the same time, it is the best result ever achieved from any main-land location. At that time Vlado was 35 years old, had a full-time job and family obligations, and managed to fulfill other social and personal activities. Out of 365 days in the year, he was active in 350 and spent around 1.000 hours on the air. The avarage daily rate was 118,6 QSOs, and approximately three in ten contacts were with DX stations outside Europe. The article of Z35M: "A Personal QSO Marathon: 43.300 QSOs in One Year" was published in CQ Amateur Radio, May 2005.
