SOA LP 12hr
I dabbled in during the weekend as and when I had some time. I found the conditions tough as reported in the UK HF contest reflector, but there was some new DX to be worked.
I started on Saturday at 13:50z. The second QSO logged and first new DXCC was 9J2BO on 15m. The doublet is working well the N/S paths. I jumped between 15 & 20m working what I heard, mostly VEs. I was glad to work the central and western areas - with the furthest to VA7ST in BC. VE5MX had a good signal here on Sat
A short excursion to 10m delivered ET7L at the 3rd call and a few minutes later I worked ZL/ZS9HI/MM easily on the 15m band - on their trip to VK0EK - Heard Island DXpedition.
A bit later I worked 9M6XRO, V51YJ & ZS1EL as well as some VKs on 20/40m. After dark I found J79XF & VP9/G3VYI
I checked 40m at 23:00z and was pretty quiet so I went to bed. Sunday morning did not deliver much but I was pleased to work 3 ZLs in the last 30 minutes.
Missed: A2 was not heard and 5X only came our of the noise a few times here with my antenna. 9V had a good signal but I could not get through. I also missed VU & J3
