Yesterday evening, entirely unexpectedly, the 6m band opened. I worked EA6SX on 50.130MHz at 15:35Z with very good signal in my 5 elements beam. This was the first 2007 opening and I really enjoyed it! After months of absolute quietness in the band this first burst was very welcomed.
By the way, I must report the contact on 17m with 5W0SV, Vagelis form American Samoa. As the dxpedition in Swains Island is already finished with great success and the team is under preparation for the back home journey, we have to say that all of us in Greece we feel proud of you Vaggelis.
VP5DR – Turks & Caicos - David, W9DR is active from the Turks & Caicos as VP5DR until June 25, 2018. QRV on 6m only. QSL via H/c.
