New Country Burkina Faso XT2AW: By DF2WO

 

Harald DF2WO tells me he’ll be at XT2AW starting Sept. 29 to Oct. 30. This will be a one-man operation. He plans to be on 60m about every night. With conditions the way they are, he may be on JT65 and FT8 more than CW or SSB.        QSL to M0OXO.

 

Cyprus:

 

from a month I've released a new blog website at this address : www.5b4alx.cloud

 

over there you can find information about the activities on 60m and 6m mainly like some articles and QSL info

 

Can you kindly bring it back to your DX bulletin together with my 60m activity information with a new fullsize vertical 1 / 4l vertical antenna?

you should give a sure sign of the commitment I'm putting in the blog to the service of those who contact me every day.

Thanks in advance     5B4ALX – Alex

3Y0 - BOUVET ISLAND: From their website

 

The January-February, 2018 3Y0Z Bouvet Island DXpedition team has posted a propagation page on their website (http://www.bouvetdx.org).  It has videos showing propagation predictions for that early 2018 timeframe.  The tab for the propagation is in the header menu.  You can choose time, frequency and signal strength for your QTH.  This is based on the average sunspot numbers forecast for January, 2018.

 

 

60m Website: The 60m website is: www.60metersonline.com

Please send your station picture with you in it to webmaster@60metersonline.com and he will be happy to post it with the others. It’s nice to put a face with a call. On the website we have a 60m DXCC country count. It has nothing to do with the ARRL DXCC award. Go to Achievements, DX Awards and you’ll see who is on our country leader board. Feel free to send your totals to the webmaster for posting. As you work a new one, advise our webmaster to update your listing webmaster@60metersonline.com _____________________________________________________________________________

If you know of a friend going on a Dxpedition, please encourage them to operate the 60m band and keep me posted so I may pass the word.
