FT5GA worked for an all-time new – #324 total


Posted: September 23rd, 2009 under Contesting, DX, Dxpedition, Hamradio.

ft5ga_logo The past weekend I was at the LA8W/LN8W station. The rotator had stopped working for the 20M/15M tower. Since I am the only one that dares to climb the tower, I was the obvious choice. After a few hours up in the tower, the problem was fixed. Turns out it was a few loose connectors to the motors. The antennas were turning again, and I managed to work FT5GA on 15M CW for an all-time new. That was #324 and a big relief to get them in the log. We did participate a few hours in the SAC CW contest, where we worked 1001 QSO’es. Operators were LA8AJA, LA9VDA, LB3HC and LB8IB. Claimed score on the 3830 reflector here.

On Sunday morning I worked V73RS on 20M SSB for a new one on SSB. I heard E51USA strong too, but I couldn’t break the pile-up. I have worked South Cook before, so no big loss, but it’s always a nice DX.

Thanks Ulis. And good luck with Glorioso if you haven’t gotten them already.
