Fighting the 15m QSB monster to the
death... (sunspots are for wimps).
Antonio Nikola (Tony) was a lone signal in an
empty 15m. It's always worth a look at weekends as it can
relatively pileup free.
Initially I gave 5/2 - and then realised
25dB of attenuator was in the way. But then the noise level is
S5-6 A full G5RV is not the ideal 15m antenna, but we dragged
this one together and it was a proper contact where we fought it
every inch of the way...
... and then a much smoother contact with Paulo Callea, py2nft, was a lot easier
on 15m as the prediction wheel suggests. Summer conditions are
certainly making this route easier.
Again I failed to hit record until we were done.
Oh well, there will be another day with 32k amateurs in Brazil
to get through...
