All 5/9 ++


Yesterday evening we had a sked on 40 meter with two of our club members who were in F and EA land.
The signals on the band were all very strong. Not a single one was below S9 as you can see in the bandscope above.
Gerrit was working with about 300 Watt from the south of France, Tjakko was working mobile with 100 Watt from Northern Spain, Henk with 100 Watt from Dordrecht and I was running the usual 25 Watt but we could make a nice QSO with the four of us.
That was between 19:00 and 19:30 UTC and a little later I heard some stations from South America on 40 meter. Unfortunately I couldn't log a QSO with them.
