6 meter

I was not very active the last few days. Propagation was also not very good. But today I made some qso's on 6 meter with SSB. First I worked ISØBSR/P from Sardinia. Other stations: I6FLD and IZ7FLS. Most strong signals came from Italy. A lot of stations were calling. Only on HF 20 meter was the best to work on, though not too many stations. I did work SV9FBG from the island of Crete, R12ØR and LZ2Ø15KM.

Am I a beacon station?

Am I being heard? That’s the question. Answer: oh, yes I am. Look at the list. It must be the perfect night to make a bunch of qso’s. But you won’t belief it, I didn’t make any qso’s. Why? I don’t know. Finally I switched to WSPR. You can watch the WSPR results in my previous posting. It’s my destination to be a beacon station, and that’s okay.

Good old 20 m WSPR

WSPR 20 m tonight.

6 meters

When I looked at dxmaps.com 6 meter must be promising. First I tried CW - I heard some stations from Sweden. (SM2SUM) With JT65 I heard IZ0MIT. But no QSO. Now I switched to WSPR and I got 2 spots. Finland and France this afternoon.
