VP2MWA showed up last night and made about 100 qso’s. The operator was NE9U Scott, who is leaving the island today. QSL to his home call.

 

VP5/K0PC Had a great run tonight on 5405. Not sure how long he’ll be on the island.

From Luxembourg:

 

The beacon lx0Hf is again qrv after we found a new qth and after it was repaired!

It was located on my contest qth but during a storm lasr year the inverted V was damagged.

As i had some interference while the contests we had to find a new qth for the beacon .

The frequency is 5204 and it was already heard in europe.
