April 2, 2016 it wasn’t contesttime but time to chase DX. Together with several clubmembers (PA3EWP, PD4RD, PA2R, PA3BWD, PA1BDO, PB0AIC) we spent some time on the station chasing VK0EK Heard Island and FT4JA Juan de NOva Island.
Starting of at 9a.m. local time with some repair work to the station and finishing just after midnight most of us were able to make one or more QSO’s with these rare DX-stations during the day.
For me VK0EK brought new bands on 12 and 160m. FT4JA brought a new country on CW and bandpoints on 12,15,17 and 80m. Unfortunately I was not at the radio in the afternoon and missing some more bandpoints so the chase is still on.
