ZP6/DL7UFN and ZP6/DL7VEE were the call signs from Jan and Rolf from September 4th-15th, 2008.

 

We have to say a big THANK YOU for a great hospitality to Tom, ZP5AZL/ZP0R and his family.

So we enjoyed this dxpedition from his big contest station even in the minimum of the sunspot cycle 23. Signals often were extremely weak, but for example Europe is 10000 km away. Hard atmospheric noise especially on the lowbands made it impossible to read small signals. Sometimes we found unexpected good openings to Japan late in the evening on 17 m. We had to learn about the conditions from Paraguay to the rest of the world.

A colour QSL was printed by www.QSLSHOP.com .

Our special thank goes to these direct QSLers and DXers which helped with a little extra to minimize the costs of this expedition.

Total 6834 QSOs including dupes. Nearly every QSO was a DX-QSO!

Europe 59 %, North America 22 %, Asia 14,3 %, South America 3,6 %

A few more QSOs were logged as ZP0R in the WAE SSB-Contest. QSL therefore only direct via ZP5AZL.
