It has been a while since I’ve found time to add a post, or to spend much time on the radio. On this Saturday morning, I decided to get up a little earlier than usual to check the band conditions for DX. I found some good DX to the west, in the Pacific and Asiatic Russia on 40 meters, as well as to the east in Europe and the Mediterranean on 15 meters. The propagation on both bands was very good, but there were lots of stations so breaking through the QRM made some contacts challenging. I only worked one new country on 15 meters, but it was lots of fun to see the variety of locations active on the bands.
