Greetings to all.
Propagation on Sunday 15 May was the worst I have ever experienced.
Best wishes from Sunny South Australia.
From Coco /YO9BC
1] Last Sunday, May 15, exceptionally I was in my "shack"; --I called
and listened on 14293, at NET time,
but propagation was so bad that there was no chance to contact
anyone....Back noise was here "S" 6 ,
and more ! This confirms your report for the same date .
2] My new station [out of town, rhombics 8 lambda on 80m] progresses
well ! - Hope to be ready for next int.
R.I -Chicago ...Fixed over North pole / U.S.A. --
3] Just as info;- I will be out of Roumania for two weeks, [Belgium
and France] therefore not available for NETS .
As compensation, for sure I will meet with R.I. clubs and R.O.A.R.
Best regards, friendly V. Duque Y09BC
