February 9, 2016

There is no doubt about the most popular DX of the week, TL8TT (Central African Republic) and TU5MH (Ivory Coast), followed by N5XZ (USA) who also found time to do some spotting. Best looking call of the week was Friday, WØWOW, Jerry, who was top spotter that day.

And what a location, the foot of the Rocky Mountains.
