To DX Editors from G3SXW, 13 Mar.
Here is a brief report of our trip to Nauru.
C21SX (Roger/G3SXW) and C21ZM (Bob/G3ZEM) made over
20,000 CW contacts in 132 DXCC countries from Nauru
between February 27th and March 7th on all nine HF bands,
including 38% on WARC bands:
160 m 220 N.America 34%
80 421 Asia 34%
40 2222 Europe 29%
30 2216 Others 3%
The LF path to Europe was very difficult: no contacts on 160 and
only eight on 80 metres. On HF the path to JA and North America
was excellent whilst West Europe struggled on short-path through
the Russian wall.
QSL all contacts to home call via bureau or direct to:
