40 meter at night / morning

I catch a cold and couldn't sleep, afraid I kept the YL awake and she have to rise early for work, so I was all night up. Coughing and sneezing and best mode to work with is PSK31 in such a case. 40 meter was busy all night/morning. I worked with low power: 40 watts and worked a new DXCC Venezuela YV5KQA, Jose Manuel from Miranda. 7863 km. Also worked AC2AD Ron from Penn Yan, NY USA; RA3XI Victor from Kaluga, Russia; RV3SEU Sergey from Ryazan, Russia; UY8VO Valeryan from Znamenka, Ukraine; K2WOP Curtis from Syracuse, NY USA. RZ6BS Sergey from Shabel'sk, Russia. On 80 meter was very quiet, only a few Russian Stations.

  1. 's Nachts zijn leuke tijden voor 40m. Zou het niet met 5W gelukt zijn naar Venezuela? Leuke afstanden. Beterschap nog ! 73, Bas

  2. I'm always interested to see what I can work during the night hours, but never interested enough to forsake a warm bed for the shack. Your cold had a good outcome, I think!

  4. Beterschap, ik ben net herstellende van een griep.
    Daar door is de PACC aan mij voorbij gegaan.

  5. Hallo Bas: ik denk het niet, ik had al een tijdje CQ gegeven met 5 watt zonder resultaat. En 's nachts, ach, dan liggen de buren op één oor. 73 Paul

    Hello Julian, normally I prefer my bed too at that time... It was a nice change to explore the band at night. 73 Paul

    Hallo Wally: dan heb je mij nog niet horen hoesten. hi, 73 Paul

    Hallo Tjeerd: ja, jammer dat je daardoor de PACC hebt gemist. Zo'n virus is toch knap lastig. 73 Paul
