20:53 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments








March 28, 2013

A strange week in that it was very poor all through to Friday. Then OK Friday and huge on Saturday and Sunday.
XR0YG (Easter Is.) was understandably popular on the weekend and H4OT (Temotu (Nendo Islands)), T2GM (Tuvalu), FS/LY2IJ (St. Martin) along with lots of others.
Friday, Dave VK5MRD worked ZL3MYL, VK4FSCC, KQ6PK, ZL2RED, ZL2RED/ZL1AA QRP and KH6RC. Dave asks, “ZL2RED/ZL1AA QRP was running just 10 watts. ZL3MYL is new to the ham bands and is enjoying 10m very much. If you hear Myles out there please give him a call.”Saturday he worked, T2TT, ZL1AVV, ZL1BTB and ZL1MTL again.
