1W to ZL2FT 28MHz


 2011-10-20 07:42  PA0O  28.126098  -18  0  JO33hg  1  ZL2FT  RF70mb  18293  35


A super day again at 28MHz


There was no real clean freq left on 28   Rusian taxis
The typical rolling tjirps  many Japanese etc etc


Tried to work 3XY1D  at 17m they had a good signal but seemed deaf 
Tonight  heard them again now at 12M cw  but still "deaf"
Strong on 30m CW but many calls  no response.
Fast CW but low QSO rate  they must have a giant pile?
But if so why give the callsigns after every QSO then?
Beats me.
  
This seems an unworkable dxpedition for me.


T32C  does hear much much better.  added some slots again.
TX3T was not heard  anymore.
They have moved to Marquesas isl. 
now TX7M   log search of TX3T is removed too I had 4QSO 
Tonight weak in CW at 17m but they picked me up!
Must confess  I was not running low power.


160m again a new DXCC  FR/DJ7RJ
very pleased with this one  in the  African zone where receive conditions are very difficult it is very hard to be heard in the tropical zones at 160m.  This gives me the impression that my 160m ant is working okay.  There where many callers who could't  get trough to him.

And an easy QSO with JT5DX at first call gives some hope for the coming Stew Perry DX challenge this weekend..
