Andorra 1977 PI4GN / PA0GN 40 year ago

2018   i still have QSL cards available


HF PA0GIN sk.
                                                            that is me in the VW fan  we had the VHF and 70cm
                                                 the old keyer used for MS was very difficult to program i remember only  after some training one could manage to forfill the exact timing to input a message in the memory..


OSKAR  Satellite operation

WSPR propagation report speaks for it selfs.

12 hours WSPR all bands  160 80 60 10 6 > 2000km
 most activity is shifted to FT8  a guess

DAC 23cm good tropo

This evening  15 May DAC 23cm strong tropo signals over sea and  strong radar
good UHF propagation in coastal areas
    the original  quality of bitmap  is lost as soon it is copied to this page
   does not matter  bitmap jpg gif png format

 FT8 rules on shortwave  50MHz   and  70MHz 144 MHz
but on UHF SHF time stud still
 paper logging and no LOTW..



This morning 6m FT8 BA0AAI NN33 -14 hrd 10m WSPR

073615 -14 50.313  CQ  BD0AAI NN33 China
 copied on the 2 ele 6m   3 band VHF  antenna

now i a 7ele 6m 
No China or other DX heard but a lot of single hop EU  best dx EA8 5B4

Unfortunately there is no general agreement about FT8 dial frequency in Europe hence there is no FT8 activity in the 4m band 
Today Friday 17 May some FT8 signals could be worked at Dial…

50MHz FT8 today 8 May 5/6 May UHF SHF at PI4GN JO33hg

Above the FT8 50MHz MAP of today 8 May  the FT8 50.313 is buzzing every day



May contest at PI4GN 70cm 23cm 13cm 9cm 6cm 3cm 1.5cm
I was guest operator at 70cm this time
propagation was good  North Sea tropo ducts
nice DX workable at 432MHz ODX OM3KII JN88UU  916km and 23cm
OK2Z? 900km   2 x OE   OE5A and
another I do not have the log here believe the other was OE3C

heard LB2SHF 10.368870 GHz
