It’s been another lean week for activity for me and nothing on 1Øm. I worked a shed load of stateside and Italian stations on FT4 but mainly on 2Øm. That’s life.
Best DX this week probably FM8QR (Martinique), V51WH (Namibia), TT8SN (Chad), SX2A (Greece) and 9J2BS (Zambia) but there were others.
Just one report this week from Eduardo, LU9DCE. “Spectacular DX, Buenos Aires – Chad.
2Ø21-Ø2-25 14:5Ø TT8SN 1ØM 28.Ø75 FT8 (JK72MC), Nicolas Sinieokoff”. Nice one.
I chased him but no luck for me.
