This is TI9/3Z9DX and RA9USU Dimitri on CW 17M from Cocos Island! 25`th place on Most Wanted list DXCC! And EI9KC is more than happy to work him as NEW Country on HF! Tiny signal from Cocos Island but strong enough to copy EI9KC 5NN on my hexbeam ! I know Dimitri and his style of CW`art after Yemen. He was member of 7O6T in 2012 and also as 7O2A personal CQWW activity. Great to hear him again! TI9/3Z9DX is a 4 Man operation from Cocos Island. Two Polish ops are there as well. Dom 3Z9DX (ex SQ9KWW) and SP8SIW Przmek. 4`th member is local TI2HMJ Jorge. Well done to whole team to put TI9 on air! Their location is not great to work EU but I`m happy with my QSO. This is beauty of CW, SSB in that condition .... sweet dream to copy anything. Recording is low quality I know that. I hope to have another chance to hear them better while I am busy packing my stuff for Juan Fernandez 3G0ZC ....
This is something what I had to record on the video. First of all I fixed my monitor 90 degrees for portrait mode to be able fit more on the screen but this is only 50% of the whole split on 15M for K1Navassa! Seen stations with 599 up 30 ...So when K1N was on 21.006 Mhz they replied callers on 21.036 .... any questions? I had real pleasure to watch that. First of all I am not chasing them any more and I was watching operators technique. Great fun was when some of the callers had split below up 1 and they were taken :) !
I am glad to see recent LoTW upload from Monaco 3A2LF Claude. Still need few slots to be confirmed from this small country. I had 2 QSOs with Cluade on 20 and 12M. 12M QSL was most important for my ONLY Monaco on 24Mhz. And when spotted on LoTW just 20M QSO confirmed I had to send e-mail to 3A2LF Claude to ask him to check his log. I have his paper QSL received via Bureau for our 12M QSOs .... so it must be some small mistake or something. Claude replied very quickly that our QSO was incorrectly logged on 15M. Received new LoTW upload next few minutes with 12M QSO on it. Real HAM Spirit! Thanks a lot OM Claude!
This is example how every little steps to get QSL are important. I have few similar QSOs on LoTW but other side doesn`t want to cooperate to fix mistakes. For example : HI3TEJ ... several e-mails sent to Ted no reply. I had another opportunity to work another stations from Dominican Republic to get QSL.
