All,

S92HP was on 60 M FT8, I used my puny little military transceiver at 55 watts (on a good day) to work him: 0447Z 11/06/19. He was also on 17 M at 1837Z. Not a rare country, but it was fun anyhoo. Despite the "HP", he's a qrp station.

New band mode for me... Got them on 20 CW/SSB/Digi and 40 CW (new one)/SSB/Digi

Heard them on RTTY today but couldn't break the pileup and lots of QSB here. Since no 80/160 this season from here, I'll be chasing them on RTTY for the fun of it. Also need any slot on 17.

Now to get the ZK3 on 20/40.

T30 – 40M

T30GC 7.006 up 1.1

 

These guys have lots of experience in the Pacific and know our openings.  Look for them on 160 before daybreak.

 

 

Busy times here at the farm:

Spent a good morning in the sunshine with N7MB putting together a tall 160 M vertical.  We worked on the 80 M yesterday.  I have to order a bunch of stainless hardware, but the project is going well.  Mounted the VA6AM bandpass filters on the wall tonight.  420 QSOs today in CWTs and lots of swimming at the gym.  Mounted a metal box at the base of the tower so I can try to troubleshoot my SteppIR which rarely works on 40.  Time to take a weed whacker to the ground rods used for the beverages.  The neighbors have been busy harvesting and my field will be soon I hope.

Ralph,

Good report, I'll try for the T30. FB on the swimming too; that keeps the energy level up. I swim too & I also installed a Bowflex M3 in my studio so I have the energy for DX.

All,

A82X has been on 80 3 nights in a row; I'm hoping for 1 more night of 160 M. Oh! before ZK3A QRT, they were on RTTY on 15 and 20. I forgot that RTTY is fun.

T6AA was on CW this morning, the best path seems to be skewed over Eastern EU; I'm monitoring for an FT8 Q.

George,

I am not too worried about working T6 and I need it on lots of bands.  Robert has been working tons of Europeans, but it is generally too early for us.  So let him get the competition out of the way.  As it gets darker earlier we will have a better shot and he is building up his antennas, so will be stronger.  This is a great opportunity for us.

 

I worked T30 on 80 and 40 just for fun.  They were OK on 160, but an hour past our time.  I always like to support his DXpeditions since they are to uncommon places, they put in a lot of effort, and they are efficient. 

 

Go after A82 with a vengeance.  That has become real rare, so get it while you can.

 

Back to working on the station…. It’s endless.

I forgot the zero. They are also on 30 M and 40.

They were not real strong on 160. It is more like the prop we get to the east coast.  Sometimes it is well defined.  Give it a try at sunset.
