Abt 2z we arrive in PN63CI. Temperature +7 C
We have made RX ANT to Europe (BOG abt 2km long) and vertical part
of Big Vertical (abt 80m high point).
Propagation very stable during all night.
RX only RN6BN in QRSS60/30/10s mode O to M (sending files via FTP on
Sam's FTP-server) and some unknow lines in T on 705.8 and 706.3.
But we have the large QRM from Rus LF broadcasting (243KHz and abt 500KW)
and Loran's QRM from ????
QRM-lines: 137.70515, 137.7055
We have the very bad local Internet - very slow and astable.
Basically we have an opportunity to use DX-cluster via compact and
The night has gone snow and temperature was lowered up to -12 degrees C
We have made ground system for TX aerial - with 100w output from PA
the current in ANT is abt 1.8-2A.
After abt 14z we begin to give a beacon for ZLs.
Sam RN6BN begins us to recept one hour prior to him Sunset in QRSS60.
After our beacon on RX we look O FB RU6LWZ in QRSS60 and we begin with
them QSO. But after 19z propagation is down to M/T
Complete on a QSO format we have no time to be finished QSO(we do not
receive the full report and SK(EE) from RU6LWZ) - Sunrise in 2125z
I have no good access to the Internet - therefore mine temporary
