The Netherlands on 12 Meters


This station gives an entirely near meaning to the term "Big Gun" station. I worked PA3FQA this morning on a new band. Soon afterwards I worked PA4VHF in the same country. Both these stations were on the 12 meter band and the first I've made here. I always think of fellow blogger PC4T when I work stations in the Netherlands. Being a bicyclist, I can't think of a better place in the world to ride. Both these station were 599 into West Virginia!

The rest of the afternoon was spent hiking in the forest again. It was a really beautiful day here with temperatures in the low 80's. After returning, and just before dinner, I worked OK1AWZ in the Czech Republic. Milan was on the 30 meter band. A little later, I was able to work ZF2AH in the Cayman Islands.

I heard a station in Iceland this morning but couldn't work him. I need that country for the DXCC logbook. Perhaps another day?

Hi John, Now I hope to work you soon, your antenna is doing a good job. 12 meter is a good DX band. When 10 is open, 12 also. 73 Paul

Good morning John, very nice work on 12m and the temps down your way sound great!! I have heard Iceland in there as well. I was able to make contact with them during a contest this year. I find that contests are a great time to pile up the DXCC's. There is lots of countries on at one time and they are all listening for calls.
