The band conditions have been poor for the past few days – I didn’t work anyone during the CQWW CW contest over the weekend. But this morning I worked 5T9VB (Mauritania) on 30M RTTY for a new one. I got him quite easily despite an IT9 calling him continuously on his working frequency. Some will never listen/read…
I just worked TL8AO (Central African Republic) on 15m SSB. I got him on the first call which I was surprised with as he wasn’t very strong with me and quite a few were calling him.
Another new one in the bag – 6V1IS/P (Senegal) on 15m SSB. Its nice to hear a good few DXpeditions on the bands again after a dull summer.
About 2 and a half weeks ago I sat my Morse test. Finally I got my new shorter callsign – EI4KN. Now for a lot of updating! Logging programs, LOTW, macros, QSL cards etc all need to be changed as well as memorising the new call hihi.
