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.

Same here for the Aussie & S. America in the evening. Also in late afternoon I have C. America in here with strong signals. But nothing coming from the central pacific area - Marshall Is., Kiribati Is, Micronesia, etc. etc. very quite in that area.

    10M BAND.....>28400 SSB .... Always give your full callsign. Listening is the key so be sure we call you before replying. 3Y0J will always listen up (using split) so it will be useless to call us on our transmission frequency.
  • @ BJ radionut:
    I like these guys already. :cool: Sounds to me like ROBO callers in ANY Mode will be ignored!!!!(y)

    3Y0J: Update January 29, 2023: Ken estimates Marama should arrive at Bouvet on Monday evening just before sunset. He says he anticipates a good weather window for at least two days then. The team will attempt to move the equipment and supplies onto the island using the zodiac then. They have two zodiacs. They are hoping to accomplish it in those two days. :cool:
