5 MHz: The fun continues ..

More and more stations appear on the 60m band and activity increases rapidly. After 7 days of operation 45 DXCC entities and 11 CQ-Zones are in the log, including this nice ones:
A6 (United Arab Emirates), C37 (Andorra), CU (Azores), EA8-EH8 (Canary Is.), EA9 (Ceuta & Melilla), KC4 (Antarctica), KP4 (Puerto Rico), SØ (Western Sahara), UM (Uzbekistan), UN (Kazakhstan), ZS (South Africa).
More fun to come, for sure!

Active on 5 MHz (Tropical Band)

Since December 15, 2016, Radio Amateurs in Germany are allowed to use a 15 kHz wide segment on 5 Mhz (Class A only) with max. 15 W EIRP. That was something I was waiting for a long time. On New Years afternoon I easily matched my inverted L-Antenna to 5.360 Mhz and started working on that band in CW and JT65 mode. In just a couple of hours 24 DXCC-countries, incl. TF, W, VE, KP4 were worked and my signal was heard on all six Continents (by PSK-Reporter). What a fun!
