August 2, 2012
Well thank goodness for the weekend!!

The rest of the week was bad, bad ,bad.
CY9M, (St Paul Island DXpedition) was an easy top trump over the weekend with various other including MY/OT9Z, (Islandhoppers DXpedition to Jersey) being popular during the week.
Arie, 9W2VVH worked PU2TWA 55/55, PY2TKB 57/57, PY2XAT 57/57 & PU2LEP 55/55.
He comments: “Just in correct time to work 4 stns from Brazil after last contact to PY about 3 month ago. The short opening to SA around 0040utc-0100utc and all QSOs via long path direction”...
Dave, VK5MRD managed a few this past week. VK3TCX, VK2IPK on fm and JG1FML on SSB.
He says, “Apart from working a few VK5`s on 10m FM today I technically didn’t work anyone else however... I saw on the DX Cluster that Brian VK5BC had worked Mexico and 9W2VVH had worked into PY2. I swung the 5 element SP towards PY2 and called CQ. I did hear a PY2 try and call me but I had too much QSB on his signal. I also didn’t have time as I had only stopped home to grab a drink and then head back out to work again. I also heard 9W2VVH on scatter too. Wish I had more time as I am sure that I could have made a contact into PY2. maybe next time”. Time, the one thing not even money can buy.
