Slow Progress

Well, I didn’t get any new countries on 80 meters during the RTTY Round Up. I had hoped I would get at least one. I did make a lot of contacts, however, even though I just worked on one band. Last night I managed to get CE1/K7CA on 80 meters for a new country, bad QRM and QSB too. This morning I did pretty good getting BU2AQ on 160 meters. And thats on my 29 foot base loaded vertical!

V5/DK1CE

Just worked V5/DK1CE in Namibia on 80 meters CW (o4:57 utc). That is really good considering he is in sunlight over there. One more new country for my 80 meter DXCC. I haven’t had a lot of luck this winter getting new ones on 80m. I missed him last night but a solid QSO tonight!
