COMMENTS

Well that was a Remembrance Day to remember at the DX site. First off no snow so we could drive across the field to the DX bus. First time in years for that in November. We put out the antennas in record time due to the easy walking conditions. Then we lit the wood stove and got ready to DX. And DX we did. As you can see above the conditions were great with the first TP’s heard in 4 years or more! We were able to null out some e locals or semi locals and get some good DX.

73 and Best of DX

REMEMBER ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN HEAR FOREVER
