Day 60 of DX


It was brutal today, trying to work my 60th day of daily DX. I had breakfast early this morning with friends in town, so therefore, missed my morning window on 17 meters. It took nearly two hours to find an opportunity, on the 12 meter band, to work IK5ZWU in Italy.

Everyone on the air seems to be chasing TX5K on Clipperton Island, but nothing else.

This morning I nearly gave up on the continuous DX contact. It was nearly too much to bear.

Hello Mike,

Yes, missing the "window" is a big deal. I was hearing stations all the way to 10 meters but the vast majority were chasing the Island.

Much too many for me, I don't think I'll log them without intervention of the great CW op himself.

Congratulations, John! Who knows? Maybe you can a streak going like someone else we know! :)

Hello Larry,

Perhaps....but there are days when it's turning into "work" instead of "play". I'm looking forward to the warmer weather when I can get away from the electrical noise here in town. One of the great advantages of QRP !
