QSL update

All the QSOs were uploaded on LoTW. This include QSO done with the call XE3/IZ2LSC and XF3/IZ2LSC (iota NA-045) as well.

Also the DIRECT paper QSLs are being sent in these days. I hope you will receive it soon.

QSL design is ready

With the help of EB7DX and EC7ZK the QSL design is ready.

Now we have to send it to the printer and start replying to all the direct requests first.

What the world said

The adventure is over.
Once at home, along with a thousand memories, it’s always nice to look at the clusters to understand how the worldwide amateur radio community has seen my activity.
Below, I collected the spots on the cluster regarding my callsign during the Mexican activity.
Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and fortunately I do not read any complaints or criticism (despite my slow CW!)

See you at the next adventure!

Andrea, IZ2LSC

Propagation forecast

Here there is a table with the predicted openings from XF3.
UTC is Greenwich time and LT is local time (on the Island).
I will pay particular attention to the openings in red.
Let’s hope in the sunspots!!!

Antenna test

Yesterday I spent all the day testing the antenna I’m going to use in Mexico.
All went fine. The vertical dipoles resonance is good and also the performances seems good.
With the antenna very near to houses and walls I was able to listen to JA stations in 17m.

Also the vertical for 30m seems to be fine, at least from a resonance point of view (SWR less the 1.3:1 at the centre of the band).

Let’s see what’s happen on the island with the antenna mounted very close to the sea.
