VK on 10 meter again

I was reported by VK6TQ from Perth, Australia again on 10 meter today with 5 watt WSPR. Also FR1GZ from Reunion island and PA0O. On 20 meter BPSK31 I worked EA7IPP from Sevilla and RX3XP from Russia on 17 meter. I had a very nice day, sunny and temperature 15 C. I was reading a book in the garden about Near-Death Experiences. It feels like heaven ;-) Meanwhile the rig is running WSPR on 20 meter. Isn't that fantastic?

  1. Very good with WSPR Paul, I was supposed to get out and about on WSPR last week but never did get around to it. Working late most of the nights and no time once I get in. This week time is taken up with appointments such as the dentist this evening.....well maybe on the weekend.

  2. I missed working VK on 10m SSB here yesterday but a pal a couple of miles away from me got him. Later I was waiting patiently to call Richardo PY2HL near São Paulo Brazil. He was 59+ and then went QRT before I got a chance. Lots of other great contacts on 10 SSB yesterday.

    Makes me laugh when I think in the days I was on 27MHz CB they used to tell us it had a range of 30 miles. PY2HL is 5907.9 miles away and the last time I worked Brazil (a few years ago) I was running 2.5w from a Yaesu FT-817 in to a 5/8ths vertical. WSPR can be fun but I prefer voice to voice contacts.

  3. Hi Steve, there are a lot of possibilities above 24 MHz when condx are good. I seldom work SSB, most of the time digi modes and CW. 73 Paul
