ST0R worked for an all-time new one

Posted: July 31st, 2011 under DX, Dxpedition, Hamradio.

Early on Wednesday July 27th, I checked the radio before work. I worked FP/K9OT on 40M CW. He had a nice and strong signal and was easily worked. A few minutes later, I worked IM0P in EU-165 for a new IOTA. On Friday July 29th, I had some time before work. I got VK9HR on […]

Here are my soundclips from May. I see I didn't record too many in that period though. The main reason is 6M coming to life and HF taking a backseat. Anyway, enjoy the recordings. Soundclips: JW8HGA 20M CW 4U1ITU 6M CW YY5EDG 40M SSB – didn't copy me TM0Z 40M SSB – EU105 new iota […]

#288 and #289 on LoTW with S9DX and CY0

Posted: July 12th, 2011 under DX, Hamradio, LoTW.

These are two confirmations I've been waiting for. S9DX was worked back in February, both from JW and home. The CY0 stations were worked back in March. I worked K8LEE/CY0 and N1SNB/CY0. I'm now at #289 LoTW confirmations. I haven't been listening too much on 6M lately, but according to the cluster and the spotmaps, […]
