On the Air for 1 month

Well it is past time for an update.
In my first month I cave contacted 52 countries, and have had 26 of those confirmed on Lotw
Just touching 300 QSOs with 66 confirmed as QSLs on LoTW.
I set up mobile for a field day and ended up wet with only 2 contacts for a full days effort.

The temporary G5RV antenna has done quite well considering

  1. Hi Cliff, thanks for the FB QSO and the quick confirmation on LoTW. Great to see Christmas Island is on the air! Have fun with the radiohobby and looking forward to an other QSO in the near future.

  2. I noticed you did well about 100 to 1300 Z today on 40! I will be listening next couple of days. As with thousands, we really need to work Christmas Island! Glad you are there and look forward to QSO. As an aside, I am very happy with my SAL-30 receiving antenna (from Array Solutions) and note in your pictures you have a wonderful site to put one up!

    1. Thanks Andy,

      After 2 months on air I am learning the ropes finally.

      Better skills and better antennas, and improving each month.
