<<< or 3 cycles on Six metres from the same location! >>>
This is cycle 21! Remember 52Mhz, not much idea how to do anything really, just out of school and learning! Tough location but still amazing for the frequency offset to the rest of the world. 26 entities with the best DX to Mexico!
Now it's cycle 22! Finally 50Mhz, still the same tough location but starting to really put CW to use. The Caribbean openings this cycle were legend, unfortunately my tape recorder wasn't connected for the better ones such as VP5, KG4, CO and 8P6. S.E VK had long sessions of indicators from all around the world this cycle, during one opening I was keying on 50.110, 27/11/1991 and alerted Joel CU3/N6AMG that the many Middle Eastern video signals we were both hearing gave us the first CU~VK contact ever and my '0 DX' of 19,251km.
Now into Cycle 23, more than ever aware
of the role of indicators, a no expense spared station in the same tough
location and less frequent propagation. Country tally increased by 20+
helped by the largest opening ever into VK2 with 9 entities worked in Europe
in under 2 hours on the 31/10/2000. Best Dx also was European into EH3/Barcelona!
