ST2AR #191 on RTTY and JD1BMH #265 on 30M
Posted: May 16th, 2010 under DX, Hamradio, RTTY.
As we're well into May, 6M is starting to come alive again. On the 13th, I worked 3 contacts with Ukraine. I know the band was open later that day to other parts of Europe. When I had time to check the band again, I could only hear stations from France, so I didn't bother to work anything.
On the 14th, I was listening a lot, but the band was quite dead. I was hoping for A9, but I guess it's too early in the season yet. On HF, I managed to work IS0R on 3 modes and bands, 40M RTTY, 30M CW and 20M SSB. J28AA was on 30M, so I worked him, since I don't have J2 on LoTW on 30M. A few minutes later, I noticed JD1BMH was spotted on 30M CW. I heard him through the qrn and managed to work him for #265 (30M). On the 15th I got ST2AR on 17M for a new one on RTTY (#191 RTTY). That was my 5th qso with ST2AR, hopefully with plenty more to come. I did have a miss with him on 12M a few weeks back.
Today I started off working Fred KH7Y on 17M CW. He is an LoTW user, and I don't have KH6 on 17M LoTW. Then I worked E7, YO, 9A, 4L and ON on 20M CW, all LoTW users. Even though I have several contacts with those Countries, I don't have them confirmed on 20M LoTW. 9H3TK was worked on 30M RTTY and VR2XMT was worked on 17M RTTY.
