2021-04-24 Getting some new countries on the 17 meter band, 10 meter opening 2 weeks ago
With a bit of trying and retrying I tuned my home endfed to the FT8 frequency in the 17 meter amateur band. I'm chasing 'slots' on that band: countries I haven't worked on that band before. Today I got the Balearic Islands, Wales, Kenya, Indonesia and Lebanon in the log, all new on this band for me. Before that there was a nice 10 meter opening during the day, where I worked several European stations. Nice to see good propagation! Update 2021-04-25: On Sunday I tried FT8 on 17 meters again, this got me Thailand as a completely new country! And Belarus, Latvia, Lithuania new on the 17 meter band.
