ES 30 June
Exciting spots 50MHz W7 's worked in DL
JW7QIA was only579 , more south everything was stronger JW7QIA was reported in ON 9+++ nothing new all seen before.
JW7QIA had huge pile working split
worked before. Would been a new one on 70MHz ... but then only 599+ in ON and S-PA i am afraid
I heard 70.063 LA2VHF 559 JP53
then heard LB3AG would be a new call cq 56 70.200
but he replied to an other PA3 much stronger of course and faded
did QTF 0 CQ'n for some time in the hope something might possible over the North pole
still we are close to the longest day solstitium zonnewende always the most interesting time for 50/70 MHz propagation . however last weeks we rarely had sun the longest day was overcast and rain.
6M was wide open OH SM2 ES LA JW7QIA
strong DL's backscatter working / reporting the rare W7 K7 west-coast square CN !!
but i was in the middle in the death zone as used before
went QRT too early?
later PE5T reported KL7PY !! 50106 10 seconds woow only the 2nd time in PA that KL7 was reported /worked it will be a dream dx for ever here i never hear anything worth to mention since 20 years
Kees is real top DX-er on any band 160 -4m respect.
no N-America and S-A yet at 6m
missed the huge 13-6 opening
1 x JA 1x FR this year at 6m
entering July the best ES part is over
delete a could be 4m QSO
DELFSAIL July 1 2016
very nice event despite rainshower -summer good live music
like 4horsemen Kensington etc
was open for everyone
First time DELFSAIL was 1986 by coincidence like 2016 during EU football
in 1986 Dutch football was still on high level
A lot has changed since then ..
6m is death and the dutch football millionaires are to busy with other things no time to play soccer.
