2 new grids worked on 6M May 26th

Posted: May 29th, 2011 under 6M, Hamradio, Soundclips.

After the big opening on May 21st, the following day was more of a disappointment. The band was open to the east, but no stations were heard. The only sign of life to the east was 2 x OH and 1 x YL stations in the log. Monday May 23rd was also not very good. […]

6M opening May 21st

Posted: May 23rd, 2011 under 6M, Hamradio.

Lately I've been wondering where the 6M sporadic-e had gone. So far I had only heard a few minor openings which I didn't bother to work anything at all. When I turned on 6M Saturday morning, the band was in good shape. EP-TV was well over s9 and I found a free frequency and started […]

#284 and #285 on LoTW with 9N7AN and 4A4A

Posted: May 6th, 2011 under DX, Hamradio, LoTW.

I didn't really expect these two to show up so soon. Early this week, 9N7AN showed up and gave me #284 on LoTW. I don't have many 9N stations in the log, so it was very nice to work that expedition. A few days later, I noticed that 4A4A had uploaded the log to LoTW. […]
