C31CT on 30M and a small JA run
Posted: December 23rd, 2008 under DX, Hamradio, Homepage, LoTW, Soundclips.
A small report this time since I haven’t been on the radio for several days. On Sunday, I had a go on 30M. I called CQ and was spotted by ZL2IFB, thanks Gary. Band was open for some DX, and I got 15 JA’s in the log and one HL with HL3IB. I worked the following JA call areas: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9 and 0. Signals were quite strong, with some stations having QSB and echoes. With these openings, I have noticed that I hear something I believe are my own echoes coming back. When I run CW, I run full break-in, and I can listen in between my dots and dashes. I hear faint tones, so I guess they are my own signal coming back at me from somewhere. Kinda fun listening to it, but I couldn’t detect it on my own recording though.
Later in the day on Sunday, I worked C31CT for a new one on 30M (#237). He was running on 10.111, a frequency with heavy qrm, but luckily, I read him most of the time.
Here are the soundclips this time:
And a few stations I picked out from the 42minute recording on 30M Sunday morning:
I also uploaded my latest QSOes to LoTW. Three hits with the contacs on Sunday, SV1LK, IZ8EEL and JI2KTX. New countries confirmed lately are D4C and A43DLH. Now my total are 196 LoTW only.
