I was trying to make my new radio work as I wanted it to on digimodes most of yesterday and the day before. Who'd have thought that you'd have to press the VOX button to activate VOX eh?

I did manage three new ones, EK1KE (Armenia), HC2GRC (Equador) & SV5AZK (Dodecanese).

I'm in the office today but I can see remotely that the band is wide open to Russia, Ukraine etc.

You may have been a victim of filtering* - where you set the software to ignore 'countries' already worked. Check with PSKreporter if you are being heard by stations in that area.

*I use WSJT-Z which has the facility, I don't use it, but it has other features I like. Filtering is evil.

Could be I suppose, I always answer anyone who calls.
I had a little pile of Russians the other day after working some DX.
Always glad whoever needs the country or locator and quite often I need theirs as well.
There will be other days so not to worried.

Nice one Craig!

I can't compete with yours today. Did manage to sneak in one when I popped home at lunch which is a rare weekday one for me. SSB, 10w

IU3OXX - Italy

Normally not one to shout about, but it's my first 10m Italian of 2022.

He was a very good signal here, heard him working G4ICD.

I was busy today but did get ZB2IF on FT8

SSB, 10w

RK6FO - Russia
UR4LQ - Ukraine
SV9RGI - Crete (first QSO to this one for 2022)

Israel and French Guiana heard, but couldn't make it work. The station from the latter, FY5KE, worked last year, but would of been nice to make a second contact.

New DXCC things for me so far today are; 

ZD7JC (St Helena), 
UB2FF (Kaliningrad), 
OM7AHJ (Slovak Republic) and 
J69DS (St Lucia) 

all FT8 with 40W at the antenna (which is an end-fed half wave vertical).

Nice one Roger on the St Helena contact. I have heard a station from the island a few times in recent days using SSB, but haven't been able to make myself heard through the crowd.

St Helena was a fairly easy one Neal, oddly the St Lucia chappie was being heard here all day but was difficult to get through to. 

Not hearing that much on 28USB yet, 27 was fairly active today though. Still splitting my time between 28 and a fairly dead 50.

Ten was really noisey at my QTH yesterday.

Some DX around but only caught one station in Brazil, already worked before so not new.

PY2XB 14:35utc GG66 80Watts of FT8 to a Cobweb.

10w will get round the world well on ft4/8.
Had the USA and Japan myself today on ft8 running 5w.
Would try lower power but don't think me radio will go any lower just to see.

Thank you Mike. I hope to use a lot lower than my licenced limit in the coming months.. just waiting for that Spring E skip to start Smile

At the moment I am actually finding it quite difficult on 10m, for that 1 I managed today there were 5 other stations around Europe and Russia that I didn't make it back to, plus the station I managed on 15m didn't hear me on 10m when they were on there earlier. So maybe not doing quite as well as you think Wink

Neal
It can be funny in that you can see loads but can't get back to them.
Then out of the blue Japan or somewhere call's you well on ft4/8 that is.

I find ten quite strange at times.
Quite often I find that I get no replies even with strong signals coming in.
May be it's one way but when the prop goes it really goes easy.
Of course if other stations don't want to answer that is up to them.

Anyway the prop was excellent yesterday evening Sunday the 27thFeb.
It was quite dark here but NA/SA were booming in.
What I caught on FT8

WB0ZRD 18:38utc DM79 Colorado
W0MB 18:49utc EM29 Missouri
KD8TNF 18:57utc EN91 Ohio
K5EK 19:03utc FM03 North Carolina

Ecuador.. very well done. I haven't had a contact to there on any band yet, let alone 10m.


One for me this evening. SSB, 10w


EH8CLP - Canary Islands. First one into the islands for 2022.


I tried some lower power work on 40m after, but it got a bit embarrassing with LZ144GO struggling with my callsign and other stations chipping in helping to get my callsign across, so called it a night after that one Embarassed Roll on some proper E skip so I can try some vlp on 10m.
