ZS8C worked for #334 (#331 current)


Posted: November 24th, 2013 under DX, Hamradio, Soundclips.

zs8c_marion_island This was one I was sure I would not work from home due to me only having a vertical antenna and those active from Marion Island only having 100W and simple antennas.

During CQWW SSB I know several LA-stations managed to work ZS8 on 10M SSB. I didn't hear anything at that time. And I have not heard ZS8 since.

Yesterday I noticed ZS8C was on 10M and several LA-stations got him. I found out about this a few hours later, so I thought it was too late for me. Suddenly the signal started to come up. I just had to give it a shot and after a few minutes, he was suddenly asking for an LA8-station. ZS8C was finally in my log for #334. Only 9 left to work. Last time I got a new one was back in 2011, so they are very rare. Listen to the signal and qso below. Thank you very much for being active Carson!
