Several new ones – V8, 5Z, 9L, YB, C5, VK9DWX
Posted: October 21st, 2008 under DX, Hamradio, Soundclips.
The last week has been pretty productive when it comes to new countries.
Wednesday gave me 5Z4/RW1AU on 30M (# 221 30M).
V85SS was worked on 40M CW Thursday evening. This was a new country on 40M and CW. The signal was up and down, but mostly 559. It's only the second contact with Brunei, so it is a very rare country for me. YB4IR was worked on 40M SSB. I thought I had YB, but apparently not.
Friday morning I managed to get 9L1X on 40M (# 204 40M). I heard C57R, but didn't have time to be in the pile-up. KH7XS was on, but not too strong with me this time.
I was hoping for some more VK9DWX on Saturday, when I finally had the opportunity to listen during daytime. It payed off. I worked them on 20M CW, 30M RTTY, 17M SSB and CW. C57R was worked for a new one on RTTY.
I made some soundclips last week with some of the stations that I heard or worked:
- V85SS 40M CW Brunei is pretty rare for me, and nice to get on CW too
- 9L1X 40M CW great signal this morning
- KH7XS 40M CW Bill, not so strong this morning, and flutter made it difficult to read
- VK9DWX 17M CW The operator just changed from SSB to CW, no pile-up for me!
DJ6TF confirmed in an e-mail that I was in the S79TF log on 30M. He also sent me these beautiful pictures from the Seychelles.
