Hi, E31A team hits the bands since some days. Eritrea is already confirmed on several bands including 6M here so, not in hurry. Despite the big piles, the ops usually listen to a short split and use their filters & good ears. In 3 days, I could log them on 15M CW (new slot), 17M CW, 160M CW (new band), 40M SSB (new slot), 80M CW (new band) & 30M CW (new band) ! All bands are filled from 6M to 160M, I don't ask anymore ! Thanks to the team for their excellent job there !
Hi, yes I'm late ! End of year & beginning of 2018 were very busy... ^^ December started well with ARRL 160M CW thanks to my new Inverted L : I made 50 QSOs in 4 hours of activity, 30 sections including Virgin Islands for a new one !
- HV0A Vatican City was worked on 80M & 160M CW for 2 new bands ! - Then I seriously started to learn & work FT8 in order to grab some good ones on Top Band. I could log A71AM, YV4DYJ, EA6SX, SV5DKL, IS0GQX & W7USA from Arizona @ 0800UTC ! Still on 160M, SV9BAI & PJ7/UT6UD were worked in CW for another 2 new ones... - On 80M CW, I could work TZ4AM from Mali for another new one ! - On December 29th, I could enjoy a short 6M FT8 opening and then work G0GGG, GM4UYE, G4AYU, G7ITD & GM4VGR... TNX guys !
- I also worked a loooot of US stations on FT8 and finally completed my WAS "LotW only" in 2 weeks, that's awesome... FT8 or not be ? I don't know but other digimodes lost a lot of fans since its start... My Digimodes total jumped to 182 DXCC at this day. That was December report, stay tuned !
