SP/OH5LID again in the shack ! ;-)

All what's good or even better, coming to an end very quickly.

Again, after two Years from first meeting, I've had unique opportunity to eyeball QSO and to drink a Tomza beer with my Finnish friend Janne, better known as LID.

OH5LID to be exact ;-)

This time Janne as "Iron man" or maybe Ironmagpie :-) stopped by in our house for trip break on the way back from after Ironman competition in Pula, Croatia, driven by his amazing Boss XYL Natalia.

We had FB evening here joining 40 Years Anniversary meeting of local club SP3PGZ from Kolo, where we meet lot of ham radio operators, good beer and Polish cuisine specialities.

      L to R : Janne himself, my XYL Ola, Natalia and Andy SP3FCO.

Long talks after back home, and unique atmosphere with our special guests makes Suomi, Polish and Russian almost the same languages :-)

Pity Finland is not next door - but we will try to fix it :-) maybe next Year,

Have a safe trip home!

6m from Kanton Island, Kiribati by T31T Polish DX pedition - Ended

This page will bring You fresh news about 50MHz  activity from T31T,  Kanton, Central Kiribati.

A  Polish DX-Pedition by REBEL DX Goup will run EU's Most Wanted #5 DXCC entity on HF, but special, 
first ever 50MHz activity from Kanton Island will be conducted by well known globetrotter 
 Mek SP7VC

Main operation will start after long trip from Poland to Samoa 5W1, and few days sailing to remote Kanton Island. Estimated time - October 1-2nd. 

Due to transportation costs, ( more than $1k ) and high luggage manipulation fees, attemp to bring EME equipment there and Moonbounce operation on 6m has been cancelled.

Mek will utilise one of Icom's IC-7300 and 4 element Yagi designed by YU7EF for terrestial Es operation, all possible modes. If You feel there's a chance to any opening into particular part of VK/JA/ZL please send DXCLX spot. Although there will be no real time DXcluster usage, we will try to QSP message to Mek.

Below is a Azimuthal map with headings from Kanton Island.
