VK0EK - Heard Island
One of the Most Wanted DXCC after 19 years of silence QRV again !!!
HEARD ISLAND ... One of the most remote places on the Earth
Location of Heard Island on the map
And , and I am happy to be in the log already ! TWICE !!!! Two bands 40/30 CW !!!
Thanks to DXA - The real-time online radio log server - Whole
World can see almost live stations logged.
This is my second experience with DXA
Very weak signal on 40M and not many stations calling , people quite confused
where DX is listening ??? The trick was ... DN ... It means down.
Heard Island DXpedition next week will have to share bands with another
Most Wanted DXCC - Juan de Nova FT4JA and both teams agreed how to QRV
and do not mess with callers. Plan is Heard will listen down and Juan de Nova up ....
Will see how it works soon!
Straight after my QSO Adam EI5JQ sent his 5NN to Heard Island and we started to
celebrate. Hard work to fix antennas @ Papa Lima pays off !
On 30M similar situation like on 40M and after few calls got reply F9KC 5NN. Had to repeat just once. EI9KC ... EI9KC 5NN ... Happy days!
QSO managed with simply GP antenna!
Pressure is off now. Will try few more bands soon. VK0EK will QRV for three weeks!
I hope it will be enough time for us.
