MARCH 11 UPDATE by SP5APW – Jacek XV9JK (SP5APW) reports heavy local QRM covers the whole of 20 & 17m bands. He doesn’t know what’s causing it. Have a listen to what he hears. Leave comment on DX-World Facebook or Twitter page if you might know answer.

 

MARCH 9 — New accommodation is simple but good. This is one of the tallest buildings in the city. The big flat roof is on the 5th floor. Tomorrow early morning I will build a hexbeam there. Should be on air at EU morning.

MARCH 8 — Our entry permits for Phu Quy island have been issued but another issue has just occurred. The accommodation we were going to stay on the island refused our reservation. So, we had to arrange quickly something else what wasn’t easy. Not sure if I will be able to raise my antennas and operate radio in this new place. All should be clear tomorrow after arrival on island.

JANUARY 18, 2019 – During March 10-16, 2019 look for Jacek SP5APW to be active from Cù Lao Thu (Phú Quý Island), AS-157. SSB activity on high bands mainly (17 & 20 m) using SP7IDX Hexbeam. In case of worst case propagation, Jacek will work FT-8 on 40 and 30 m. The callsign applied for is XV9JK. There is also possibility being on air March 6-8 from Mũi Né (mainland) as XV9JK/P.
