2023-02-17 More new countries/entities in my log
My search for new countries/entities continues and some interesting ones show up. The big DXpedition for Januari was going to be the 3Y0J DXpedition to Bouvet Island. I hoped to get an opportunity to make that contact. In the end between the first rush of the high power stations and the early end of the expedition I have received signals from them for about 20 minutes before they stopped for dinner that day. The day my new Yaesu FT-991A radio arrived I got Reunion Island in the log in FT8. In the last weekend of the WRTC 2023 award I was trying to get those stations on the 15 meter band and when I had those in the log I looked for other interesting stations on that band. Which showed me an active station on French Guiana for that weekend only, busy in the R-E-F contest in morse. So I submitted my log for that contest with 1 entry. In February I got Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Martinique as new countries in the log.
