Last 3 antennas are standing. QRV only on 17m and 12m. Finally QRT expected around 14 UTC. Picture by Karel Odehnal of Czech DX Team.
The team is celebrating 100,000 QSOs. A reminder that tomorrow (Oct 16) is the last day of activity. Earlier today the team took Covid tests prior to their return home. See here
Yesterday was an exceptional night for North America on 160m. The improved conditions made it possible to write 75 QSOs to NA in the log. In total we have in the log 430 QSOs with NA. We hope that this will be the case tonight. In the picture you can see the view from the hill above 160m vertical and the main directions to EU-JA, NA-KP4 and SA.
OCTOBER 14 – Yesterday, the S9OK team surpassed 90K QSOs.
