4U1UN on LoTW


Posted: April 2nd, 2009 under DX, Dxpedition, Hamradio, LoTW.

4u1un.jpg I got 4U1UN (#219 LoTW) confirmed both on CW and RTTY on 40M this week. Thanks for activating that rare DXCC. On the other hand, I wasn’t in the log for the VK9LA RTTY qso. I should have made 100% sure that he had my call. Now PA8AJA has one qso on 30M RTTY. So much for thinking it’s just misprint. They are now qrt, but at least I logged them on 2 bands. Mellish Reef on the other hand aren’t that easy to get in the log. I have had a few tries on 40 and 30, but no go so far. They expect to be qrv to April 10, weather depending. Hopefully I’ll get a shot soon on an all-time new one. For more info about Mellish Reef VK9GMW, go here.

Congrats on 4U1UN Andy! I heard them too a few weeks back and for the life of me could not get them on 40m and 80m because I was too damn close and they were skipping over me. If they operated during the day on 40m then it would not of been a problem. Good news was I snagged them on 160m which was a piece of cake. I suppose I will take that as country totals on 160m are a little harder to rack up. Congrats on VK9LA. Another one I some how kept missing or could not get the signal to from the east coast USA with my modest little setup. Oh well… there will be another time. I hope! Heh!

Thank you Ulis. I was happy to finally get them on another band and mode. That station is quite rare, so I was quite happy with that. Congrats with 160M, that’s a good one. I currently have no antenna for that band. Too bad about VK9LA, but you’ll get a shot sooner or later. I had VK9LO worked many years ago, but always good to get a country on more bands. Now I’m hoping for Mellish, but no such luck so far.
