Low activity here

Vanmorgen heb ik afgestemd op CW qrp frequentie van de 20 meter band. Even later hoorde ik QRL? Het bleek RN4NZ te zijn (see photo taken from qrz.com). Zijn signaal rapport was 549 en door qsb zelfs niet altijd goed te nemen. Ik kreeg een 569 rapport van hem. Ik hoorde ook HB9DAX die CQ riep. Ik heb hem al paar keer gewerkt en om steeds dezelfde stations te werken is ook saai. Ik hoor ook heel vaak dezelfde stations op 14076 KHz met JT65A. deze mode leent zich helemaal niet voor uitgebreide QSO’s. De condities zijn ook niet bijster geweldig en de Solar Flux komt niet boven de 80 uit. Misschien is er vanavond nog wat te beleven. Vanmiddag laat WSPR lopen op 17 meter met 5 watt.

This morning I tuned for the QRP CW frequency band of 20 meters. Moments later I heard QRL? It proved to be RN4NZ. His signal report was 549 and because of qsb not always easy to take. I got a 569 report from him. I also heard that HB9DAX called CQ. I already worked him several times and to work the same station over again is boring. I hear very often the same stations with JT65A 14076 KHz. This mode is not suitable for extensive QSOs. The conditions are not very great and the Solar Flux is not above the 80. Maybe there is something to do tonight. This afternoon I let WSPR run on 17 meter with 5 watt.

  1. Dezelfde ervaringen hier. Van het weekend nog wel het e.e.a. gedaan tijdens de CGR reünie in Ermelo.

  3. How curious...I worked HB9DAX this morning, first time. He was 599 here, I was 589. I understand about working the same station frequently. Boring for the other OM, also. 73 Dick

  4. It wouldn't be boring if people actually had anything interesting to say to each other. I worked Mark K4VO in Alabama today on 15m PSK31. We had an actual keyboard conversation and I would be more than happy to work him again. But most of the time working the same station is boring, especially on JT65A which does not even permit conversation.

  5. Hi Dick, I heard him calling CQ, didn't answer his CQ call, I heard him work a Russian station which I worked earlier. After a few minutes I was going to the library and did some shopping. 73 Paul

  6. Hello Julian, it must be a language barrier for me for doing a keyboard qso. I will maker too many mistakes, I think. In Dutch it is no problem. ;-) 73 Paul
