    Is there a way I can change those call signs in my original post? Maybe a moderator can do it?

    You can't edit after 30 minutes. Sure moderators could change it but it's not typically done. But don't sweat it - we all know what you meant :)

    Yep, you made contest QSOs in the IARU contest ... those ending in "HQ" are International Amateur Radio Union Headquarters stations. By the way, contests are one of the easiest ways to pick up new countries...

    If you didn't complete the contest exchange you might not be in the log for confirmation :(

    Hey Bill, I got the exchange but where do you log it? I put all of the in the RST Recieve Field. Is that correct?

    I guess you are talking about the QRZ Logbook? Simply put the 59 as RST. You can put the zone received under comments, it really won't matter. The point was that if you both didn't exchange zone numbers successfully the other guy may/may not have logged you. And he also may not use QRZ Logbook anyway.
    So, enter your info and hope for the best!

    I remember the elation I felt the Monday after the December 2002 10 meter contest. I had never worked DX prior to that.

    I suggest you sign up with LoTW (Logbook of the World). Read the instructions carefully and you should have no problems.

    Yes, you did it... from your antenna to theirs! Congrats on the general class license upgrade and your first DX QSO's.

    Welcome to the club, and good DX! It's the beginning of a great adventure.
