#60m Saint Barthelemy worked

 

It looks like the 60m DX season has really started again. Yesterday evening I noticed TO0Z was spotted in the morning and from info on the internet I noticed today was the last day of the activity from St. Barths Island. So, when I woke up this morning first thing I did was checking the DX cluster. I already saw spots that TO0Z was active with strong signals on 5360 F/H mode. I quickly finished breakfast and moved to my shack. 5 minutes later I was in the log.Ok, this is a new DXCC on 60m for me. But did I really have fun? ....well this one was too easy. Well, you can't have it all...

The proof:


For those that want to ask. Yes, JTDX doesn't know were TO0Z was. That's because a file called cty.dat hasn't got the call listed. You can add it to this file manually: 

Saint Barthelemy: 08: 11: NA: 17.53: 62.50: 4.0: TO: TO,FJ,=TO0Z; 

Or wait till the next cty.dat update. (tnx DB6LL for info)

  1. Well done! I like the idea of a flight over that island! Maybe one day. I love the 'where?' label. It's the kind of thing English people say when you tell them one lives on Anglesey!

  2. Hello John, you can probabely fly over the island in flightsimulator ;-). I can imagine not everyone knows Anglesey. Some day I should visit Wales. Was almost there on my way to Cornwall in 2001... 73, Bas
