Two new DXCC countries
Today I just hang around on 15 meter. Sometimes there were good signals. I heard YC1LA and YC1FWO [Indonesia] with SSB very loud. 59 signals. But the pile up was too big for me. Also heard Cuba CO8LY and several USA stations (with KW's) I started on 40 meter and worked TM7WAP with 5 watt SSB and DL6MGR with PSK31. Then I moved to 15 meter. I worked the following stations with 5 watt PSK31: SV1EOS - RN6BA - LZ1MEM - RN3KL - 1B1AB [see photo - Cyprus NEW DXCC]- RV9WF - UT2MA - EK5KE. With 10 watt SSB I worked OD5NH from Lebanon, new DXCC for me. I started August 2009 with DXCC QRP in the pit of the sunspot cycle, now I worked 74 DXCC countries with QRP.
