The band condition was so so, before 2000Z I heard some Ukraine stations. Their were RU3DX and RU4UR. They were good signal came to here.

21 December, 2009

As same as yesterday

This morning, as same as bad condition on the band. very noisy, and I heard only few stations.

First UW7LL on 1818.4, I called him but around 2100Z no return, he was only CQ. Few JA station called him, same as me.

after sunrise here at 2150Z, I try again call to UW7LL. This time return to answer.I contacted on 160m after a long time.

Another station, only DL in Europe area and BU2AQ in asia area. BU2AQ was everyday very active on 160m. Usually calling CQ on 1824.5. Freq was fixed.

Really, no good recent condition.

This morning

About few days here was very strong wind blowed, weather was very bad condition.so, I can not up to my tower. My 160m antenna system is shunt feed antenna,so if tower is not full up then can not QRV(SWR is high)

However, I can listen in this morning

I found many station on the band, today active station entry on 9A CW contest.
E7 and EU-UA stations signal heard.

Maybe this morning so so good condition, but here was very noisy. maybe effect of wather condition.

I QSY to 40m band. Few days I didn't active on 160m band.

17 December, 2009

This years activity

This year, QRV on 160m second serson. Recently, sunspot number was 38 yesterday. little bit high band condition was up, so low band was not so good much noise here.

I running 200W into shunt feed antenna. Not so high power, but it can get a lot of entitys.

I am very pleased QSO of TF and G.

Each place direction for across the north pole. It is necessary more high power and good ear.
