Some DX on 6m

I don't really want to transform this blog into a 6m DX blog. I realize it is not interesting for all my readers. However I finally have a great 6m DX antenna I can use and it gives me least sometimes.

Unexpected and quite early in the afternoon I see a CQ from HI3T (Dominican republic) and I just answered not expecting he would come back to me. But he did and that was DXCC nr. 59 on 6m. After the QSO I made it to Puerto Rico again.

I can't be on the radio all the time. But from what I see on PSK reporter it was a good day for north


  1. Hoi Bas, dat jij een goede antenne hebt voor 6m is toch prachtig. Natuurlijk levert die antenne mooie DX op. Alleen jij bepaalt wat je in je blog zet, nou, dat is nu de dx op 6m. Geen probleem toch. 73 Hans, PE1BVQ

  2. Very good, Bas! I am still trying (a little) to get across the Atlantic. I could hear stations on the Pacific coast strongly yesterday, but only for a few minutes. Unfortunately, I have not yet managed any QSO!

    1. Hi John, it took a lot of effort, holding a eye on the DX cluster and be on the radio at the right time. I doubt if these QSOs would have been possible with JT65 for instance. It was fast propagation, one moment the signal was there the other moment everything was vanished. A good 6m antenna is helpfull. 73, Bas
