1st time on 60M (5MHz)
Today was my first time on 60M and I wanted to share. 😃
I made 73 contacts today on five bands. It was fun because it was the first time on the band so I had not worked anyone there! I some trouble getting things working with my radio because it is channelized for 60M. The CAT software and the WSJT-X (FT-8) software were making it difficult but I managed.
Here are some statistics:
Operating time: 6 hours, 14.6 contacts per hour, on contact every 4 minutes average.
Band Total DX % DX Countries
15M: 4 2 50 Brazil, Ukraine
20M: 2 1 50 Croatia (New Country)
30M: 14 4 28.6 Canada
40M: 13 1 2 Ukraine
60M: 40 18 45 Germany, Spain Mexico, Ecuador, El Salvador (German DXpedition), Puerto Rico, Canada, Argentina, Netherlands
All on FT-8 mode
There are some restrictions on the 60M band so check them out before operating.
