#332 worked with 4A4A
Posted: March 16th, 2011 under DX, Dxpedition, Hamradio, Soundclips.
This was really an all-time new one I didn't think I would work. I have been checking the band many times since the expedition started without hearing them. I heard them barely readable several days ago, then nothing until Sunday afternoon. They were on 17M CW and I could copy them quite well. I could however not break the pile-up.
Monday came and they were spotted on several bands. I just couldn't copy them, but then they showed up on 15M CW. To my surprise, the signal was quite good. But a good signal doesn't help when all the idiots were making qrm on the frequency. One station were cq'ing dx over and over again on top of 4A4A. Luckily he took a break and I had a chance. After a few minutes they replied with my call and #332 were finally logged.
