JIDX CW and GAGARIN CUP SO2C



This weekend   SO2C
Single operator 2 contest mode

We  had our 1/2 day of spring Sunday, it is back to storm and grey sky now.



JIDXCW    best JA signals at  28MHz  good propagation
 no contacts 80 160



 5x the score against 2012 
Hi power not real "needed" but  already used my PA for some weak signals at the beginning not expecting that good signals I was trapped in hi-power mode.


  
  GAGARIN CUP




5W0M very weak 14.002kHz  arctic flutter
just could copy Q5 the id.
But only 1 call needed  not many takers fb hearing there.
The path to Western Samoa is direct over the North pole.
Very difficult path in this part of Europe.
Until now  heard/worked  5W0M  only on 30m with reasonable signal.  Never a trace of signal while they are worked at 28 in the south.
 
We have been in propagation black hole since December 2012 here
While South Europe is having a ball on 50MHz  we are in the perma noise fields.
Or what the Germans say:  NDR Nord Deutsches Rauschen  

This week monitored 630m band  I need to have the tuningbox outside at the base of the inverted L antenna.
Tuning improves the signals with about 12dB. 
 No transatlantic signals anymore.
But very deep decodes on G4KPX  4x -32   4x -33dB
This low frequency gets the most out of WSPR.
 2 days unique decodes:
