Welcome to the Belgium hams who are the latest to join us on 60m as of this past Friday.; another new country on the band. Their allocation is between 5351 to 5366.5.  USA stations have two common channels with them: 5.357 USB and 5.358.5 CW.  Otherwise you’ll have cross channel. On the 60m page of DX Watch cluster the ON’s have posted their RX freq.

 

Here are some stations that were active.

ON4PS      ON5LGS   ON7GB      ON4AXU    ON6ZK      ON6LK

ON5SE      ON8KW

 

For other stations who don’t have the USA five channels, please spot yourself on the cluster and post your RX freq.

 

 

T32TR was also active last night. He came on from 0430z to 0530z. Let’s hope he’s back tonight.

 

S9 - Sao Tome and Principe: HB9BEI, Bruno. No word from him on when he might be on.

Eastern Kiribati T32TR   Ted K8AQM has reported he and his team of seven will be QRV on 60 meters. They have permission and might be on are early as March 2. Their trip runs from Mar 1, to 15. T32 was on several years ago and should be a new one for most of us. I have asked the team to come up a little before their sunset at around 0430z and listen for Europe and again between 10 and 1200z for NA. As with K5P, the Chinese radar after darkness can run S9. So we need to have patience. They will have a vertical and a beverage both cut for the 60m band.

 

Upcoming DXpeditions:

 

S9 - Sao Tome and Principe: HB9BEI, Bruno.  He is requesting the call S9BK.

He will be on Sao Tome February 25, to March 7, and on Principe from Mar 7, to 12, then back on Sao Tome on Mar 12 to 24.

 

Kiribati: T32TR: March 1-15.
