The end of September is always marked by the CQ WW RTTY contest. It is a test that I usually participate. This year we enjoy an excellent propagation condition with the SFI up to 190. The 10m band was open all day long. I was lucky to work many exotic call signs. At last our star delivers enough energy to have descent propagation. Yesterday I worked NH7O on 28450 ssb!
As we just passed the fall solstice, the 6m band is alive again for long distance TEP contacts. I worked several stations from Africa like 5N7M (Ivan), TR8CA (Alain) and ZS6CCY (Bill). Bill is actually a beacon to me. I hear him every TEP season. You can hear him too.
