#CQWW DX CW contest this weekend

 This weekend there is the 48h CQWW DX CW contest. A contest with a lot of interesting DXCC that can be worked. You can find a list on

In the past I was trying to get into the Dutch all time record list for this contest. I'm still in there 3 times. You can find the record list here: (select PA).

This contest I will only chase DX. Most interested am I in FW5N from Wallis & Futuna Islands. This would be a new DXCC for me. For myself and other Dutch operators I made a forecast with VOACAP. Although it is based on my own antennas it can still be interesting to know best times to work FW5N.

Best chance is at 12 UTC on 15m. I really hope I can find this station and make the contact.

Good luck everyone chasing DX...

Good morning Bas, good luck with trying to get FW5N in the log.

Unfortunately I didn't. I had RBN up all the time to discover FW5N was always on the wrong bands at the wrong time. No chance! 73, Bas
