WO7TSA LP ALLNice to have this one fall on weekend before Thanksgiving
WO9SSO LP 160MOperating WO9J station (West Dundee, IL, EN52) remote from N9UC club station at University of Chicago. Heard Uruguay and Argentina for the first time on 160 RX conditions seemed excellent at this end. However, many Caribbean stations (HI3T, PJ2T, VP2MDM, to name a few) seemed to have trouble hearing, making multiple CQs in the face of many callers. Many thanks to Mike, WO9J, for the use of his station and for fixing a feedline mid-contest. About six hours of operation
WQ5OSA HP ALLGood propagation today on 20 meters. Enjoyed myself thoroughly. 73
WQ6XSA LP ALLThis is another WQ6X operation from W7AYT's QTH in Concord. In between remotely joining the NX6T crew in Fallbrook, I found time to DX-hunt here from East Bay (EB) section. Using dual-QF1A Autek filters for both RX of the FT-1000mp really made the difference in conjunction with the Yaesu eDSP. Ten meters produced no opening however a handful of SA QSOs were made on 15 meters using the 10-Meter 3-el. Long John yagi thru the MFJ-949E tuner. Otherwise it was a CHA-250 Vertical and the WQ6X Lazy 8JK inverted Vee. As of late, signal levels here @W7AYT totally SUK. I worked nearly every station heard and was surprised by the number of JUICY Central/South American prefixes heard and worked. LooK for a more detailed writeup on this operation from WQ6X.Blogspot.com
WR3YSA HP ALLRotor stuck SW rough for EU!
WS4CSA LP ALLGreat fun! worked 95 countries with 100w garage-attic dipoles for 15&20 and a random-length longwire for the other bands. Fine propagation on Saturday!

XV9XVSO LP ALLActivity limited to some hours only due to duties for professional reasons and in spite of QRN at S7 for led and other industrial lightening of the industrial facility 30 m from my antenna. I think I have not copied correctly a few call signs. Anyway a lot of fun hoping next time to operate while on holiday! Regards, XV9XV (same operator of I1GXV and W7GXV)
