Short opening - 3/16/22 Indonesia


Yes, that's 3100 degrees F. Nine yrs of hard work.
Apr 5, 2005
West Coast - Washington
Every afternoon I swing the beam into the Pacific, listening for who ever, around the 27.555 area.
At 3:00 pm I started hearing the familiar sound coming from the S.W. area, telling me there might be a opening.. Then at 3:10 (dst) a station popped in from Indonesia, we talked for about 3 minutes.

Then nothing heard for awhile except for a couple stations in New Caledonia and of course Austrialia , then around 4:00pm I heard another station from Indonesia, made contact with him for about 2 min., - I already had him in the log book from the last 2 cycles.

Short opening and first for me this year into that area.

Well I must admit that the dx gods were with me again this afternoon - two more contacts into Indonesia with my mighty export radio....he he.

    Maybe. I wasn’t impressed with just clamping the shield wire to the boom with a hose clamp. I built a l bracket with so239 female hubs. I posted a picture on the recent gallery’s.

    Hello everyone, I have a old courier centurion pll 40 channel SSB, it has the extra channels and it has another switch that just moves the frequency down one channel on the dial, what is the purpose for this?
