4 new on RTTY with S2, FP, R1F and V8

Posted: March 28th, 2011 under DX, Hamradio, RTTY.

Band conditions are really picking up, and several expeditions are on for the time being. March 20th gave me VU4PB on 17M CW, S21YZ on 30M RTTY (#211 RTTY) and OX3XR on 30M CW. I probably duped S21YZ. I noticed my call being sent, but never got the report or the confirmation of the contact. […]

#332 worked with 4A4A

Posted: March 16th, 2011 under DX, Dxpedition, Hamradio, Soundclips.

This was really an all-time new one I didn't think I would work. I have been checking the band many times since the expedition started without hearing them. I heard them barely readable several days ago, then nothing until Sunday afternoon. They were on 17M CW and I could copy them quite well. I could however […]

6M aurora and DX

Posted: March 14th, 2011 under 6M, DX, Hamradio, Soundclips.
