Well I tried.
Don’t know if the 1500 Sunday ISWL took place at all. I checked the nominated frequencies on 80m and 40m and a good distance either side, but couldn’t find anything. No joy with my attempts to call CQ to establish anything either.
On my G/SP-015 activation, not really much response to my self spots on 10m CW, 10m PSK31, 10m SSB or 10m FM. Just Mark G0VOF in fact.
Fortunately, the band was lively and I made 54 QSOs:
10m CW: 33 (CX, EA8, FY, G, I, LZ, RA, UR, W)
10m PSK31: 1 (LU)
10m SSB: 20 (CU, CX, EA, EA8, F, FJ, FY, G, GW, HI, I, LU, PJ4, W)
MT2MT S2S with Simon G4TJC/P on Kinder Scout G/SP-001 and Jonathan GW2HFR/P on Gyrn Ddu GW/NW-050, both on 10m SSB.
Good DX today. My 5w and groundplane was sufficient to get the DX stations 1st or 2nd call most times, somewhat to my surprise when they had pile-ups. Normally I’d be over the moon to work Argentina, but I worked several of them, so it became “less special” ha ha! Even Uruguay was worked three times. FY French Guiana was a nice one, as was PJ4 Bonaire. 1302 UTC is the earliest before darkness I’ve ever worked HI3 Dominican Republic but the best contact was probably TO2EE St Barthelemy Island (FJ).
Using the MX1SWL/P callsign was a bit of a hinderance as it took other stations a few goes to copy it on several occasions. There’s another scheduled ISWL net at 2030 this evening, on topband, 1.925MHz SSB +/- QRM. I’ll try again there later.
