#126 on 6M with 4J9M and other 6M DX

Posted: June 13th, 2010 under 6M, DX, Hamradio, Soundclips.

4j9m_qsl Ok, so I'm catching up on heard an worked here. E4X was worked on 6 bands with 30/20/17/15/12/6M qso'es.

On June 4th, I got TK4LS and EY8MM on 12M. Both of them confirmed quickly on LoTW. Now I'm at 90 on 12M LoTW. 100 confirmed seems close.

On June 5th, I worked 4L5O on 6M CW. UT7NT in KN49 gave me a new grid on 6M. 5B4AIF was worked on 6M SSB with a nice signal.

On June 6th, I worked A92IO, 4Z5LA, EA8BWL and several stations from Ukraine on 6M.

On June 7th, 6M was open to the east with very strong signals from the tv-transmittes on 49MHz. Not much interesting was heard, but the band suddenly opened to the northwest and I worked N1BUG, W1JJ And K1TOL. I turned east again and finally got ES4SA in KO49 for a new grid. Then suddenly 4J9M was on and I got him for a new one on 6M. That was #126 on 6M. The tv-qrm continued for a long time giving me S9 with inband qrm. A few hours later I suddenly noticed a N0KE spot. I tuned down and heard a strong station. I thought this couldn't be him, but it was and he was worked easily. That was a new state and grid on 6M. N0KE is in DM69 which is in Colorado. No more US stations was worked here. WP2B was in several times and I worked him on CW. I worked him last year on SSB. GM0KZG/MM from IP70 was worked for a new grid. VE2XK was suddenly in from FN07. He was worked for a new grid. This was his first opening to Norway, and he worked LA7HJA first, then me a few minutes later. KP4EIT was worked as the last contact that day.

Hi Michel.

Thanks for the contact and a new grid on 6M. FN07 was a new grid for me. These openings are quite rare. Glad you liked the soundclip.

Always nice to hear what the signal sounds like from the other end.

Thanks for posting the sound bite.
