Great 6M aurora with 2 new grids worked


Posted: May 31st, 2010 under 6M, Hamradio.

6m_aurora_29_may_2010 The aurora on Saturday was very intense. One of several intense aurora's this year. The signals were stronger than I think I've ever heard them on 6M aurora. It might also help with the 7 element yagi. I haven't worked too many aurora contacts with it. I started cq'ing and very quickly had a pile-up going. Pile-up on cw is one thing, add aurora to that, and you have a big buzz. I ended up working around 80 qso'es and I worked GM, LA, SM, OZ, DL, SP, OH, LY, YL, PA and ES. A total of 47 grids were worked, with KP05 and JP80 being new 6M grids. I've marked the grids on a map. The blue are the worked, the black are the beacons and 2 grids that I was heard in. The aurora was quite widespread, with KP05 and KP44 to the north, IO75 to the west, KO38 to the east and JO71 to the south. I also worked the OZ7VHF gang from the Nordic VUSHF meeting this weekend.
