Western Sahara

I heard S01WS calling many many times without takers on 20 meters. So I gave it a try and worked him with +3 dB and my report +5 dB. Buth nevertheless it was a new DXCC for me with my latest call sign. I also did work CU3AT Azores both stations with FT8.

2 meter DX

Sometimes nice things happen. Like today on 2 meters. A tropo opening above France and Belgium. As the regular readers know, I have simple antennas for HF and VHF. Most of the time I work QRP or low power. With my cross dipole for 2 meter (and 70 cm) I did work F4DZF in JN16gb 744 km (462 mi) with FT8. My report was -10 dB my power 5 watts. This QSO made my day.

At the left you see my end fed wire for HF, 7 meters up as sloper. In the middle my small vertical for 2 meters and 70 cm. At the right my cross dipole for 2 meter/70 cm.
