#113 on 6M with 6W1SJ
Posted: June 15th, 2009 under DX, Hamradio, Soundclips.
This weekend it was the annual Nordic VHF-UHF-SHF meeting. This time it was held in Sweden at a place called Knottebo. Several LA’s were visiting. I joined a few of my friends and went there. It was very nice to meet several old and new friends. Here is the official website for this years meeting.
When I came home on Sunday, 6M was open, so I had to take a look. After listening a lot after something new and interesting to work, the path to 6W1SJ finally opened up. A quick call and he was in the log for #113 on 6M, thanks Jovica. I was also looking for TN5SN, but no such luck. Hopefully I’ll have a shot later this summer. I worked TA2ZAF who was very strong, nothing new as I worked him last year. I did hear SV9GPV and SV5BYR, but did not bother to call. SV1JMO in KM08 was worked for a new grid.
I see I didn’t report about working EB6ADS in KM29 for a new grid. He was worked on Wednesday. On Thursday, the band suddenly briefly opened up to the east coast of USA. I managed to work K1TOL and W1JJ. They were very marginal though. I knew the path was opened when I heard TF2JB with a strong signal a bit earlier. I also gave TF8GX Gulli a quick call. He had a nice signal that evening.
Today Monday, I was looking for JA, but no signals up here. The band was open to somewhere according to the tv-broadcasters I heard on 49.750MHz +-, but not many signals on the band at all. I gave several CQ’s in different directions and worked a few stations. A nice surprise was when OH2AUK called in from KO19 and gave med grid #532.
