JD1BLY, BD4KUU and 2 new states on 40M

Posted: December 30th, 2008 under DX, Hamradio, Soundclips.

AP2TN on 40M and A71CW on 30M

Posted: December 15th, 2008 under DX, Hamradio, Soundclips.

Not much DX  to write about this time. Too much other stuff to do lately, but managed 2 new ones with AP2TN on 40M (#218) and A71CW on 30M (#236). I also tried 4S7NE on 40M, but he didn’t copy me very well. He never got my call correctly, so I hope to get him […]
