NEW COUNTRY:  Central African Republic - TL0A

This team is supposed to be on 60m. As you might know they are active now on all bands. That is all the details I have at this time. If you hear them on 60m please spot them on the cluster to alert others.

QSL to F4WBN.

San Andres: 5K

AA4NC Will and AA4VK Ron will be on San Andres from Feb 14 to March 7. The only unknown is my call sign at this point. It should be either 5K0N or 5K0X.

 

I will be operating the ARRL DX contests, so no 60m during those weekends.

Please send you station picture with you in it  to webmaster@60metersonline.com and we will be happy to posted 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

Active stations have been 4X1R, K6EID, W8GEX, EA4DS, G4SVN, LZ2TU, ON4AXU and a PA3.  Also seen by PSK reporter RI1AND and VP8ALJ.  Both heard me on.
