I was part of the 15M CW team in IARU HF Championship. The contest started at 1200 UTC and first 40 minutes was great but I had to leave the station because of horrible headaches. I had to spend the rest of Saturday in bed and returned to the radio at Sunday 0500am and left it after the end of the contest. The propagation was really bad, we made over 1400 QSO.  I gave 161 to all FOC members after the QSO. There are a few photos from the contest.  

Today I got my licence for 60M. If you want to make a QSO, please send me an email. I can work on these frequencies:

CW: 5227.5, 5290.0, 5299.5, 5314.5, 5332.0, 5334.5, 5363.5, 5368.0, 5373.0, 5396.5, 5400.0, 5405.0

Rig will be TS-590SG with sloper for 80M tuned with LDG Z-100 autotuner. See you on the air!

Last three days were amazing! The propagation was really good and I made three new countries - E6, T2 and 3D2KM. Especially operators of the E6GG did very good job. Almost no QRM on their freq, no cops and excellent operating. I made QSO in last two days of the expedition. Thank you! Also T2GC expedition has very good ears but especially on 40M when I heard the noise created by some EU stations, I couldn't be polite. Even my wife asked me what is happening, because I used rude words to describe what I hear.  What makes me happy is Z21MG expedition by David, OK6DJ and others. Good work guys!
