Conway Reef & othersby M0TTB - Andy on 10/01/12
Now managed to get in the 3D2C log on 20, 17, 15 and 12m ... The 20m one was rather dubious, I was only 50/50 confident I got through and I didn't put it in my log book, although noted the details. The dqrm was horrific as usual, seemingly from South Eastern EU. I didn't waste much much time on 20m ssb for 3D2C.
A more enjoyable highlight from the weekend was 10m on saturday morning, with the BY0 (Tibet) activation... happy to get through on 10m ssb, I later found them (specifically BD5QDM) calling on 29.600 FM with a great signal and worked him there. Despite his strong signal, and a cluster spot by myself, it seems only one other EU got through to him on 10m FM. I did hear a VK6 calling as well.
I'm not a dedicated 10FM person, but I will wander up there and see what's about, having maybe half a dozen qso's on there over the last year or so.
With the higher bands doing well, I put out a few calls on the bands to stir up activity and had smallish pile-ups of my own with North America.
