Tag Archives: 20 meters

Short Skip Monday

I had a lot of fun tonight on 20 meters for a few hours and got a good amount of stations reporting back on my CQ call. Propagation was good in terms of short-skip and contacts were made with stations from Russia, Ukraine, Spain, Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, and Bosnia. My new IC-7600 is performing very well and I get a lot of “very good audio” reports. Yesterday I had a nice QSO with Laila HZ1HZ in Saudi Arabia and it is alway fun to have a little chat with this young lady. Tomorrow night I will be operating from my club PI4ZHE and hopefully we will make some nice DX contacts from our 100 foot tower equipped with 3 element beam using my good old Kenwood TS-870S.
