First ever QSO from EA8 on the
VHF-UHF bands

Last update on 25/06/2016

You could also be interested in the DXCC standings from EA, EA6, EA8 & EA9

This is a summary of the fist-ever DXCC's worked from EA8 (Canary Islands). I know the list may be is neither complete nor exact, but it contains the most accurate information I have. If you know of former QSOs not listed here or any aditional info than can help keep this listing updated please let me know by E-Mail . I need your colaboration !

Important: Only legal QSO between stations properly authorized by the goverment of their respective countries will be listed here. Also, due to the bizarre situation of the SHF bands (23 cm. and up) in Spain (No licenses were given by the administration for many years) and in order to avoid conflicts, I will not list QSO made on these bands for know.

50 MHz QSO: Some people is claiming QSO on 6 meters with stations portable in EA before July-1992. Please notice that all these QSO are not valid, as those stations didn't have permission to operate in Spain on 50 MHz. The first licenses to operate on this band were given to a bunch of EA's around 10/11 July 1992, using the special prefix EH. After mid June-2006 the use of this band was open to all stations (including foreign CEPT2 licenses), no longer being required to request a special license or use the EH prefix.
