Posted by on in Activity on the HF Bands Today

Loads of activity on 17 m today. Not going to bore you with everyone I worked, basically loads of Europeans and guys from over the pond, with a couple of exceptions, Rafi, 4X4FR from Israel dropped in to say hello, nice to hear from him, haven't heard for a few weeks. C91KHN from Mozambique called in, even though he was on the back of my beam, I could hear him quite well.

10 m was open again today, I worked five stations across the pond, four in the US, and one in Canada, most of them pretty good signals. After tuning around a bit, J3/PE1IIGM was giving me a very strong signal from Martinique so of course I couldn't resist adding another new country to my 10 m list. I then added another three countries to my 10 m operation of 2011, ZP5DBC, FM4NB and TE8X from Costa Rica.

17 m stayed open fairly late this evening. Both myself and Steve,  M0BKL were working stations all over the US, although he did struggle with some of them with his vertical. All in all, it was a really good evening.
