VO-060 activity


#1

Hi All

I made a quick 40m CW QSO with Andre F5AKL/P on VO-060 at 0714z on 05/07/08 before I left my QTH for the weekend. Others worked the station then. Later Andre reappears on the bands and there is a comment on SOTAWatch that the early activity may have been from a pirate. Could Andre or anyone else confirm this for sure, so I can delete this QSO if it was a pirate.

Hi Phil

I worked the same station one minute after you and he was 599+ which appeared to be far too loud for conditions at the time.

I then worked Andre at 0914 and he was the usual 559 from France - and he did not say “worked B4” so I reckon the first one was a pirate.

In reply to G4SSH:
I think that Andre will confirm.

I worked him also and got 589; he was 599 here in Reims.
This is not usual because between Reims and VO-060, 40m is not possible (possibly 229…no more).
Andy is back home; he will confirm soon that he started at 07:55 on 20m, then made 20 QSO on 30m and after that went on 40m.

73 all

Thank you Roy and Alain for info. I will scrub my QSO.

I like your films Alain - plenty of chuckling in the shack watching your work. On the latest I like the way the callsigns hurtle onto the screen in the pile up, a really graphical way to display what happens when SOTA Fever on CW is happening!

Hi to all,
Sorry for ma late answer.
Thanks to Alain F6ENO who has given you the good info.
Sorry Phil, Roy, Alain and the 2 or 3 others: NOT IN LOG at this hour !
It was not me saturday at 0700 UTC, because I was still on way.
I’ve began at 0755 UTC on 14.057 with G4EBO (the only one 20 m QSO).
Then: 20 QSO on 10.118 from 0807 UTC to 0842.
Last: 24 QSO on 7.033 from 0902 UTC to 0929. Then QRT !
The most lucky is Roy G4SSH who has realy QSO me at 0916 UTC on 7.033.

I’ve not camera, so, I can’t make films.
But I effect a QSL with photo. for each summit. You may see them on http://www.sota-france.fr
with the following link:

73 QRO to all,
Many thanks for your reports.
QSO are more pleasant in the nature.
