Conditions have been very poor to say the least from KH6 land
especially to EU. What few contacts I have made have been
from a very skewed western direction.
Today was no different, path over the pole at sunrise was not open,
I was sitting on 1823 working on email, sunrise is 1708Z and
suddenly I could hear a signal starting to come out of the noise.
???BM 8???BM then clear as a bell 8Q7BM calling cq. One
call and I had a new one in the log at 1710Z, he then faded
back down into the noise, I could hear traces of him for another
20 mins after sunrise, not enough to copy but knew he was
Just one of those top band times when being at the right place at
the right time when the band sounds dead.
Makes up for all the ones I have missed this season.
