QRV in the Maldives until July 31.
DXCC: I have verified my callsign with ARRL so all QSOs will get DXCC credit.
The last few days I have been a bitwiped out by intermittent local QRM. Apologies to people calling me who I am unable to hear, please try again later, when the QRM might be gone.Going forward I'll be doing more to work around the QRM, which isless of a problem on 15m and 40m, so on bad QRM days I'll be using those bands more, if they are open. Approximate times and frequencies where you may catch me:
- 4:00UTC to 14:00UTC around 21.29Mhz if QRM and band open, otherwise around 18.145MHzif no QRM
- 13:00UTC to 17:00UTCaround 14.190MHz if no QRM
- 19UTC to 22UTC on 40m if the band is open to anywhere outside Asia(usually around 7.185MHz but may be quite far from there if band is busy)
QSL info:Logs will be uploaded to LoTW, eQSL andqrz.com at the end of my holiday, I'll try and upload toClub Log every day so people can see if they are in the log (check the last upload date). If you'd like a paper QSL card throughthe bureau,please send me a card viamy normal callsignG4PWOafter checking that you're actually in the log using the below logsearch.
Update: you can also request a card directlyby sending a self-addressed envelope big enough for a standard QSL cardplus $2, 2 or2 to: Phil Anderson, 16A Orde Hall Street, London WC1N 3JW, United Kingdom.
Cards will be sent out later in the year once I know how many I need to get printed.
Equipment here is very simple - Elecraft KX2 with an Expert 1.3K-FA linear amplifier, antenna is a 40' mast which can support1/2 wave end-fed verticals for 15, 17 and 20m and a 0.275wave vertical with short radials for 40m. It'ssituated right next to the sea to benefit from the (approx 10dB) advantage the salt water gives (more info on that on my main QRZ page). The beach isfacing west for easy access to Europe and hopefully somecontacts from the Americas too.
