Back to the purpose of this thread.

TF/G4ODA is on SSB at the moment from IM15qb.

Worked at 55 here and causing lots of interest. :D
I'm glad he's got some ES as MS has been hard work.

Good luck all.

Cheers

Tony

Sorry, 70.181, when we worked him but 6M, 50.160 as well.

I've not called him on 6M as I've worked the square before, on that band.

Sitting on the side of a volcano, apparently. :D

Cheers

Tony

Not on 4M, I assume.
6M or 2M?

4M has been a mad house here.
Like 2M in a contest. :lol:
8 * OH stations including two FM, everything else SSB.
2 * ES.
1 * LA.
1 * TF.

All of them very loud.

Very happy bunny as there are five new locator squares amongst them. :D

OK1DFC now producing some big bursts on 4M MS!
Worked him as well.
A good day on 4M. :D

Cheers

Tony

Some huge 6M signals here as well.
I tend to concentrate on 4M as I need a lot more squares than on 6M.
Strangely, one of todays new squares on 4M, KP33, I still need on 6M. :lol:
I'll have to keep a look out for that. :D

It was good to hear Keith, TF/G4ODA, getting so many calls.
They put so much effort into giving people rare squares.
They're going to be about for a few more weeks, moving around the island from square to square, sharing the time between 4,6 and 2M, using MS and ES, when available.

Cheers

Tony

Tony exactly the same here,

8 x OH stations including two FM, some CW
2 x ES. Both CW & SSB
1 x LA. CW & SSB
1 x TF.



At first I thought we were too close for TF ES cloud but it came good in the end.
Notice how many came out of the woodwork, and some left it too late!

It was really good to hear Keith on again, as you say given the fact the the emphasis was going to be on 4m
It's great that they worked so many, and Keith/Paul will now be super keen to continue with their 4m activation
as I guess last nights results will reinforce their choice of band.

If you didn't see it here is a little video I took of the proceedings.

Nice surprise tonight.
OZ1BEF 59+ on 2M. - 862km. :)
600W, and 9 ele, at his end.
Good to get 59 back with my 150W. :D
Just me and G4KUX, from the look of things. :scratch:

Cheers

Tony

He thought he was into a sea duct as Angus beacon was strong, as was KUX, so hearing me was a bit of a shock. :D

No problem. :)
I've been listening to hours of white noise here, trying to find a 23cm path through to Mull.
No go I'm afraid. :cry:
I'll have to wait for the next visitors.

Cheers

Tony
