This is becoming a self-fulfilling prophesy. I think it will be poor and so conditions are poor. It’s my fault Ten Metres is rubbish at the moment.
DX of the week XX9D (China, Macau Is). I spent a long weekend there a few years back, wow!. I’ve never been to Vegas but I guess it’s the Chinese equivalent. It’s alleged to be the only place in China where you can gamble (legally). But what about Hong Kong? I think the Chinese can gloss over these things if they want to.
FR4QT (Reunion Is) and FH/UA4WHX (Mayotte) were also popular.
W2JPG, John, worked PY1GB -2 and PY1JSV -13.
He said, “Worked 2 Brazilian stations Sunday afternoon 2/17/19 using FT8. Band was open to South America for about 1 hour.”
Dave, G4TMZ, got back to me about his time in Lanzarote.
“My EA8 operating from Lanzarote was Playa Blanca, by the sea after walking down Calle Hotel Timanfaya Playa, as it says on the map. Also from Montana Roja, the volcano which was straight down the road from our hotel HL Paradise Island. A retired local is, Bill, M0WTW living up the road at Del Carmen. Tnx for your column. Hopefully I can send info from CT in July.”
I hope you can too Dave, all contributions welcome.
