And yet another new country worked. Austria.3 sunspots and I work 3 new ones in one day HAHAHA
As you can see by the WSJT waterfall, 15m was going bonkers. Its great to see so much action on there.
The band was open all day and in the evening time, opened into the EU. Cant say I did all that well but I managed to make one contact into the EU and it is my first contact for the new solar cycle, it was with a station in Poland. You can see on the map i was not really being heard all that much in the EU. Probably not quite the sunspot numbers I need for my simple vertical antenna to be reliable enough. But seeing its still only early doors on the new cycle, things are looking promising. I did also spend 15m calling cq on CW, self spotted on the cluster and all and nothing. It was worth a shot.
5pm local time and Japan is running hot on 15m. I have not seen this many signals on 15m in god knows how long. I am even working some of them. My plan was to come in here and solder up a filter for the Pi board and here I am making contacts. Japan might be easy DX from Australia, but they are plentiful and that makes it fun.
