recordings of T33A and K9W Wake Island.



This evening weak but workable T33A and first time heard K9W
40m rather weak possible not the best propagation tonight but my first time to copy them.
Just fixed my 30/40m inverted V
Used rotary dipole for 40m.  
Lot of QRI  including the crazy  QRX / "contester"  Dx-pedition jammer 

I have lost a bit my taste for joining DX-pedition pileup's with all the anti ham-spirit that comes with it.
But could not ignore these interesting DX-peditions because of this.
So I listened and tried just to ignore the deliberate QRI just as if it not existing.
Just wait until the jammer(s)  get tired and keep on listening for the right moment to call.
I  check my rig settings  to prevent unwanted simplex calling.
And If some ham makes that mistake  just do not join the up up concert causing more QRM then the HAM that send's simplex by mistake.  
When tuning I check the tune freq before and in between to prevent QRM-ing  not like some hams seem to do. Just start tuning on or very close to the DX-freq.  for a minute or so without checking.   As best as I can.
I think that's the only way to go not to receive a bully lid card..

Jaap mooi gewerkt.
Ik hoor ze op 40 ook wel maar erg zacht op een korte bev.
Op de rotary dipool teveel storing

Trouwens ook op de hogere banden veel storing/QRN. De zon is veel te actief.

hier ook geen K9AY die moet k nog weer opzetten.
Ik hoorde K9W niet op 1826.5 vanavond.
Dat lukt alleen met een Beverage maar de schapen staan in de weg...

Kon K9W vandaag op 12m werken met mijn zwabber draad dipool.. die hangt aan de 40/30 inverted-V
dus een 3-band dipool.

Hoorde K9W in RTTY op 40 maar te zwak voor QSO
