6m RX Japan 29-6


Japan was visible early this morning. Best DX was JI1FLB. Best signal was JA9IPF (-8dB). Tried several times but was not able to make any QSO or even to be heard in Japan. Working remote at coffee break from my job via my smartphone is not ideal. Die hard DXers will tell you at least need 1KW and a large beam. However I was spotted in south Korea last year only using 30W and a low vertical. Now I have a 5 element beam on a tower pointed to Japan. I'm shure it is possible to make a QSO even with low power if propagation is right.

Received list: JA7GYP, JA7QVI, JI1FLB, JO1LVZ, JA9SJI, JA9IPF, JA3JTG, JA3EGE and JH4IFF

    1. Same for me John, but use my smartphone and teamviewer to remote access my station. Coffee break in morning seems to be good time for Japan on 6. 73, Bas
