Re: File - Any Reports on 30 mtr contacts?
- Hi Don and all,
the conditions here in Northern Europe have been poor to dismal during daytime; they used to improve by about 1800z allowing for QSOs with JA and other Asian regions. I did not hear any stateside calls and only faint ones from LU too weak to work them.
Of the about 50 QSOs during the past 10 days I selected the following ones, omitting most of the ubiquitous BPSK:

In this context under poor condx the Contestia mode 8/250 has proven to be extremely reliable under QRM, QRN and QSB, with rare garbage print when signal levels went down to "below the grass". ROS 16/500 was good, too, but too rare to give me a trustworthy base for judging its performance.
Since I started calling CQ in Contestia about a couple of months ago, I had about 10 QSOs with hams who told me that it were their first QSO in this mode. Certainly this was possible only due to me calling with TX-RSID enabled, and very gratifying.

- Any group member have any 30 meter digital mode contacts to report?
Or does anyone have any comments about the propagation paths in your area of the World for the last few weeks on the 30 meter band?
(openings, path changes, activity, DX best times, modes, antennas, etc)
Or report 30m digital spots here:
