MARCH 20 – Weather here is between 34-38 degrees daily and as a result, we encounter periods with high noise and QRN. Unfortunately there are more electrical storms forecast for the next few days so please bear this in mind if we seem to have ‘no ears’ or as ‘deaf’.
Our stations are working well, and we have many many JAs and West Coast USA in our logs for which we are very satisfied. It seems someone was pirating our callsign on 30m FT8 on 16/3/19 around 11:00 so if in any doubt and you don’t see your QSOs listed, please work us again. Last night was our 1st night on 160m/80m and with over 900 QSOs logged, we will continue to be QRV during our Sunrise/Sunset. We have received many requests for 75m SSB, and to re-jig some of our announced frequencies – all your notes have been taken onboard and we will try our hardest to fulfil. We still have 1 full week left! [read more]
