Club Activity: CQ World Wide WPX Contest
Hi Members 

Tami and myself are partaking in this contest, this is a live update:

Band conditions are poor on 20 meters, better on 15 meters

This is our club station

Tami called a strong station in Cyprus around 100 times

Trying to work Brazil now

Well, at the end of the 4.5 hr session, we only make 6 contacts as ZS6KTS, and Tami made another two with his own Callsign.
towards the later part of the afternoon 20 meters started to open up and 15 meters faded a bit.

Worked Brazil on long path, haven't done that in quite a while, it was kinda strange, the Beam was facing North North East, and the station was in Brazil.

Well they say perseverance pays off, we were able to make contacts in the following countries:

Mario on Reunion Island
A contest station in Morocco, Tami also had a contact with his own call sign.
Cyprus, alas, we were hearing this station clearly, Tami must have replied with our Call 100 times !!! alas, we did not make contact.
ZX5J Brazil, after trying plenty times  Shy
Martin in Thailand, this one was a nice one for me  Big Grin

Thank you Tami for joining on the contest...
