It is not always sunshine with QRP. People that do regulary QRP transmissions know that. You really heavily depend on propagation with low antennas. Most of the time my radiotime is at night. And when it is dark propagation at PE4BAS is gone. I absolutely hear nothing in the evening above the 40m band. A few on 40m and a only 80m is busy enough. I really tried to hear VP8STI, one of the great DXpeditions out now but I was not able to hear even a tiny signal from them at my available time.
I received the certificate from the fieldday SSB contest 2015. I became 2nd. Not bad for a few hours of activity. I saw the the result from the Frysian 11 cities contest is also published today, I became 3rd in my section (not QRP).
the 100 DXCC in 100 days challenge. One of the participants K4SV already managed to get 100 DXCC in the log within 23 days....wow! N4YG Ariel wo made this challenge did a very good job as well today and add a lot of new DXCC in his log.
The results from 10m WSPR surprised me as I was heard in Chile. I wish to search for the exact callsign from this station and the time he made the spot but unfortenately the site is down most of the time. VK2TPM wrote about this in December and since then it got even worse. I hope a solution can be found soon. Since it seems the the site owner cannot be contacted I guess it would mean that another site has to be built and maintained by several people that now what they are doing. Hopefully someone is busy with that as the WSPR hamradio hobby depends on a reliable database.
I have a day off the job tomorrow and hope propagation will be better. I hope I can add some new DXCC to the QRP list and will listen out for the VP8STI DXpedition again.....wish me luck ;-)
