After 30 years on 50 MHz it happened today: We have 50 .. 52 MHz and full legal limit.
Thank you DF2ZC and DK4VW for making this happen.

Major activity has been so far some remote activity on DL0SHF with 23 cm EME. Meanwhile I got all the stuff running and I can instantly switch between JT65C, CW and SSB. Still there are dificulties like high latency times and dropouts in conjunction with the VPN tunnel. Stations worked so far were as small as one - certainly somewhat longer - yagi and 100w. I am pleased to give them a QSO.

QSL cards for the QSOs I made, may go here. You get yours back immediately. BUT I have no overview whoelse may have operated the station. In most cases this will be Per DK7LJ or Carsten DL6LAU.

From time to time I will update the PDF logfile you may download (see on this page on the left).

When QRV I am present on the HB9Q logging system.

See on the moon.
