My morning activity starts good.

Effort with LZ3RX  gives only 1 ping.  NO QSO.
Now Im trying with S54T  and also YT3I waiting as next station.
The 5  min QSO with 9A3JH/p promises good rocks input but maybe was random...

HOLIDAYS on KM36vc...

From tomorrow Wednesday 11-8-2010 my holidays at KM36VC starting. My time will be shared between family and radio. During Perseids peak I'll be active on 2m band working as more station are possible. Many people like to work KM36 and sometimes the list is too long. I will keep each list maximum to 5 stations and after tests will update it again.  15 minutes (+/- 5 minutes) will be the maximum time for each station. Also 6m operation is of course in my plans if propagation helps.  Hope to work you.
73s Mike.

6m opening....

Very strange opening this afternoon with strong QSB.
I m also QRV on 4m but nothing so far.
Noisy QTH make my life on high bands very difficult with S-meter to show 5-6 units noise...!!!  Many weak stations are disappeared into the noise.
Hope conditions to be better later and before the band is closed.
