DX afternoon

Today afternoong I worked these DXCC countries almost in a row in the 17 and 20 meter bands:
  • Cuba
  • Barbados
  • Turks & Caicos Isl.
  • Balearic Isl.
  • Jordan
  • Crete
All were new countries for me as OH3GGQ. Not bad, expecially Barbados and Turks & Caicos, which I took surprisingly easily through the pile-ups. (I've forgotten the countries I got as SM4SWF over 20 years ago.) The Ham Radio Deluxe software and its integrated DX Cluster functionality helps a lot in DX hunting. The time has changed since my last active hobby period, obviously. Still, very much fun!

And yes, I was using the folded dipole mentioned earlier in this blog. Obiously this site is excellent for DX .
