New DXCC

How strange radio can be - earlier this morning I took a couple of looks on 10m and there was no activity and forecasts were for poor conditions - just  tuned across the lower cw end and worked A6/DL9WVM   which is a new one for me - going to do some shopping (Big smiles).


Thanks qrz.com

  1. Hi Peter, we should not read the propagation predictions, just checking the band, there are always nice surprises. Congrats! 73 Paul

  3. Good evening Peter, great work and nice catch! I was one who used to pay to much attention to band condition predictions and may have lots out on some juicy contacts.

  4. Hello Mike
    Yes, your right and I have noticed that several of these online/desktop "Widget" predictors actually give conflicting information - I guess we need to physically check bands out - I've said before, I have tuned an apparently dead 10m band, called CQ and worked JA - they just "Appeared" like magic.Listen for the tell tale clicks/pops and crashes and increased background noise on 10.
