VP8ORK Some Success

Well I only had a little luck with VP8ORK. I worked them on 30 meters and 160 meters. I’m real happy with the 160 QSO with my 29 foot vertical but I really wanted to work them on 80 meters. A couple of nights they were almost strong enough but not quite. 160 ended up…

VP8ORK

Working on 80 meters DX now!

I did a little better on DX this last week or so. Even with propagation pretty poor I picked up some new interesting ones. I worked V5/DJ2HD in Namibia on phone to go along with my 80 meter CW QSO with V5/DK1CE. Then I worked DU1/GM3POI on 80 meters CW for a new country on…
