June summer contest 50MHz UKSMG


                                            l2 hours 6m all modes https://pskreporter.info/pskmap.html

FT8 heard VP2EIH VE1PZ  PZ5RA PV8DX YV5LI HH2JR HH70A (WSJT-x refused to pick up that callsign with d-click) and HI  KP4   but only  CO8LY was 2-way on  alternative 50.323
one way propagation for all other DX
They where working Italians but Mediterranean ham's can work  late night into the Caribbean
   while here the band is closing short after sunset.

Weekend lot of contest activity   unlike HF easy  PG7V  contest calendar
for  VHF UHF contest date's there is no easy complete calendar site? 


 Microwave contest  Saturday June 2 1200u  Sunday 1200u
     managed 8 QSO   1296 MHz   after  an easy random  QSO with OK2
      activity dropped and  no more sked's requests at KST2ME
I like 23cm. My station is good RX  and TX >30W direct  at the 1m2 dish feedpoint
But too much noise for me.
Same time 6m was buzzing so i decided for contest at 6m

WA7BNM  did not mention the AEGEAN contest
AEGEAN  UTC and Sunday 03 June 2018 13:00 UTC (24 hours duration).
so i choose N1MM contest type VHF serial Region1
rst serial and grid(6)
simultanious:
UKSMG  6m field day contest   2/3 June 1300 to 1300UTC  rst serial loc(6)

Confusing also
 Dutch Kingdom contest HF +6M  exchange  RST  SERIAL

NP2J  fb "ears" heard cq'n long time with 419 to 529 not busy
on request got a contest report thanks for ODX fb! just before  contest closing time
 KP4EIT  is a worked longtime before for most 6m HAM's
Would have been nice to receive a contest number  then it would be my ODX
now it was just a 59 thanks contact

Contest organisation and activity in the U.K. is at  high standard.

signal offset where all above 2kHz
i tuned 1kHz up to  50.324 to center the signals a bit

below my FT8 receive log
50. 313 PZ5RA strong heard and called but no response  like all other DX seemed to be deaf for  me

then it was dinner time ..
confusing this 2nd FT8 dial frequency cluster reported frequency 50323kHz
but there the audio offset was 1kHz too  high

signals where fading in and out as usual but FT8 is fast
JT65 seems to be forgotten it's only  FT8

Vreemd die 2e frequentie. Wel iets om in de gaten te houden dus. De vraag is waarom? Ik heb ergens iets gelezen over een speciale FT8 DX frequentie?? 73, Bas
