7O6T on 160m

7O6T in Yemen has been copyable here on Guam just about every morning.  They have been louder since moving the low band station to a new location closer to the sea.  This morning we finally had success with a QSO!  I was calling as KH2/N2NL, but I know the operator and he always works me as N2NL/KH2 even from his home station.  Either way, it counts!  There were many JA calling also so I know they still are suffering from QRN from local noise.  The operator seems to hear part of a call in the noise then stays with it, waiting for a QSB peak to complete the contact.  I was listening on a 600ft long Beverage RX antenna pointed at Africa.

Here are a few recordings I recently made on 160.

The first is of CT1ILT, booming in from Portugal.

This one is a station calling CQ, who is very very weak. The file name gives away the call. I did eventually work him that evening.

A QSO with SM2LIY, whom I believe was operating from Mike, SM2WMV’s place.

UA4CC, whom was already in daylight when I worked him

H44MY on 160m

Here is a quick recording of H44MY CQing on 160m, QSX on 22 (1822Khz).  The loud static crashes are courtesy the large Nor’easter up in the mid Atlantic states and from thunderstorms along a strong cold front over northern Florida.

Desecheo on 6M

I got K5D in the log this morning on a long burst when his signal came up for about 30 seconds.  It was a struggle and it’s apparent that he wasn’t hearing that well.  Here’s a MP3 of what he sounds like much of the time here:
