11 new 6m squares worked the past few weeks

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

Radio has been kinda slow here. No HF has been worked in a while, and not too many contacts since the big aurora in early August. I have however managed to work several new gridsquares on 6M. If you look at the map, you see the new ones I've worked. Thank you very much to […]

Big 6M aurora August 5th

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

This was an aurora out of the ordinary. I knew there had been a cme on the sun, so one might say it was expected. I noticed a few OH stations were spotting aurora, but I couldn't hear anything here. After maybe 20 minutes, the aurora increased. Since all the LA/SM tv-transmitter are qrt, I […]
