20170914 (Sept 14th 2017):
Another day with activators spotted on 40m not being copied at my side was about to sign one more tough day for me as a SOTA chaser until 13h04 utc, when Phil DL/G4OBK/P decided to QSY from 40m to 30m where I could copy him in pretty good conditions, despite some QSB which made me miss his signal report on the first go and forced me to ask Phil for a repeat.
Luckily, I had no problems at all to copy the 549 on the second go.
Thanks Phil for the QSY.
See following my today’s reception report of spotted activations I checked out:
QTH: IN92ET (Pamplona)
Receiving antenna: about 13-14m long wire endfed in a balcony about 25 meters above Street level.
Rig Yaesu FT-817ND
UTC - CALLSIGN - QRG - RST
12h50 - OK2BDF/P on 7032 - No Copy
12h50 - DL/G4OBK/P on 7033 - No Copy

Later, after work, I also checked out this spotted activation:
19h27 - CT8/DK7MG/P on 7032 - No Copy
Out of seven spotted activations, six on 40m couldn’t be copied and one on 30m, could and is the only one I could chase today
