| More Ionospheric Ducting From The DX Mobile
As I entered the Car park at work this morning I gave a shout out
to Chris VK1GG/P2, who for the second time this week was booming into my mobile
"FT-100 Maldol Combo" on 20M.
VK1GG/P2 - Chris
was working a pile of Europeans and fellow VKs (Australians) when he heard me
calling him from my mobile at around 8.25 UTC this morning. We had a quick
couple of overs and It was time for me to begin my working day. (With a smile
on my face, you know the one. Only DXers have it hi hi)
Later in the
evening at around 18.25 UTC, I was once again out and about in the mobile with
the rig turned on listening in on 14.222 MHz.
Whilst driving, I
heard JM1WBB - Isao coming in great as he worked lots of stations from various
continents located around the world.
Isao - JM1WBB
was hitting my little Yaesu FT-100 with a 5/9 signal all the way
from Setagaya, Tokyo Japan.
Once again I
engaged the PTT calling "HTS/Mobile" where again I was in look as I was
received by Isao - JM1WBB with a 5/2 report into Japan. I was
surprised to make the QSO at that time of day as well as being absolutely
Its always a
great feeling getting good reports from DX Stations whilst using my mobile ham
station, I hope you all have a great weekend, 73 happy DX.
