UR3HC Ukraine

I had just finished a short range QSO on 40 meters with a fellow who said 10 meter SSB was open today. Although I don't have a 10 meter antenna at home, I was able to work this fellow (UR3HC) in Kremenchug, Ukraine with my 20 meter antenna. It felt good to work him this early in the afternoon. Most of my DX contacts have been around sunset. A few watts CW goes a long way. In this case 5,023 miles. Today makes my third contact in the Ukraine. The two previous contacts were UW5ZM and UR5ZVP.

Interesting picture here....I'm sure there is a long story behind it.

Hi John, are you sure about the call sign, because UA3 isn't an Ukrainian call sign but Russian. I can't find info about UA3HC. 73 Paul

Hi're absolutely right. I've corrected the error and thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Sometimes my brain just doesn't sort things out well.

I also worked a 9ABR (which I heard very clearly) but can't find the call in any of the normal books. It should be Croatia...I must be having a bad day. Hihi
