In order to be active with the best possible conditions from New Caledonia, Continue reading “FK/5B4ALX – 30m looking for…”
Thanks to Michael (cloblog.org) for having activated the “DXpedition” option, more features and a better management of the OQRS. Continue reading “FK/5B4ALX DXped clublog feature”
I’ve been standing for a few days due to work commitments but today I found some time to go ahead in building the antenna. Continue reading “…new 5 bands crossfeed yagi (2)”

It is now the 1am when I decide to turn everything in the radio room …
At this time it is soon for the intercontinental 60m, only signals from Europe, so I decide to try the 20m FT8. Continue reading “NA pileup on 20m FT8”
In July this year, the Cyprus telecommunications ministry has assigned us the two new bands including the much anticipated 60m.
5B has become newone for everyone and the next day I was immediately active at 5357kHz in JT65 and 5354kHz in CW. Continue reading “W8GEX DX Bulletin”
On the opposing part of the island, about 90 minutes drive from my home… to meet Norman 5B4AIE.
A good chance to visit the radio club! Continue reading “Paphos Radio Club – 5B4PRC”
A year ago I thought about renovating one of the yagi by starting designing and building a two crossfeed multi-monoband elements.
Currently there is no such thing on the market to compare my project so everything comes up on paper and simulations and no one can know if it will be a success or failure until the antenna will be ready to be tested! Continue reading “New 5 bands crossfeed yagi”
Two days of intense and pleasant work in Italy, on the top of Milan City at 75m high, for the installation of the new Rick IU2FGB antenna.
Excellent work and excellent results … so many DX in sight from now on for Rick! Continue reading “Riasing up the antenna @ IU2FGB Rick”
Little bit less deep in decoding of JT65, this faster new mode is increasing on the bands.
Surely it is not suitable for decoding signals with levels at the QRM limit as the predecessor JT65 demonstrated but it can be a valid new system to run pileup.
