"Today in my box" ....

ZK3N - Tokelau - not so often on the air Tokelau can be heard so every single contact counts. Here ZK3N QSL gave me new DXCC on 20mCW. Thanks a lot.

5W0M - German DX-Pedition from Samoa , fantastic job on the bands and 6 contacts confirmed here on 4 bands and 2 emissions. Looking forward to see QSL on LoTW as well. 

EI9KC and his modest station achieved 1`st Place High Power SSB Single Operator - All Band NON - Assisted in Ireland during CQ WW World Wide Contest last year. With my shack located in the kitchen ... this is big success for me.

Brief visit on Aran Islands EJ0PL

QTH of EJ0PL from EU-006

From July 23 to 29 with the callsign EJ0PL an international team will be active from the island of Inishmore, IOTA EU-006. 4 team members visited Inishmore last friday - EI4GK Sean , EI3KG - Michal, EI9FBB - Dave , and myself EI9KC  It was quick visit: mainly to see antenna field and how to prepare few logistic issues.

Getting idea where to put antennas. Three stations are planed.

Typical Irish weather gave us wet welcome on the Island. It was my first time on Aran, I hope to visit some interesting places during our stay on Inishmore in July and take some pictures as well. This time I had no chances to take any dry photos :)

Sean EI4GK have chat with "Locals" ...

Enjoyed this visit so much. Had nice time with Sean, Michal and Dave on Inishmore. Lovely full irish breakfast on the end of our stay in local pub was our dinner :)

First Africa QSO on 6m

I am not big fun of VHF ... not well equipped for this band as well. Can use my windom dipole. Is not the best but is working on this band. Some radio operators are calling this band "magic band". Well. For me magic band is 30m :) Anyway great opening tonight on 6m we had today. Made few New Ones  on this band ... and first Africa contact. CN8KD Mohamed gave me 599 and rapid LoTW QSL. It was not easy to work him but I did it! Many thanks!

SP7IDX - Europe's best built G3TXQ Hexbeam ... website HACKED!

Just to let you know that today SP7IDX - website was hacked
SP7IDX is one of the G3TXQ Hexbeam manufacturer, his antennas are used in few countries.

Waldi SP7IDX was told by his website Admins that it was strong attack and they were surprised too!
Who , who wants to HACK antenna manufacturer website? 

Another antenna manufacturer perhaps ?  

This is very strange situation in our HOBBY to hear story like that .... 

Anyway , website has backup and will be on-line shortly.

SP7IDX is Europe`s best built G3TXQ Hexbeam Manufacturer. Best quality and Best Price!
