QSOmonth - December 2008

E-mail Print PDF

Year by year Winter seems to be less and less. We got some snow in November for a few days.  And again in mid-December, but no white Xmas in Helsinki area. Similar fluctuations seemed to dominate December working conditions on low bands. Conditions were good for a couple of days per time, then got bad with high noise levels but could abruptly open to Far East/Australia in the afternoons just before dusk- or to East Coast in the late mornings.

QSOing started with 8Q7GC on 40m cw on the third. Got even JA-mini pileups a couple of times on 80m cw in December. The last QSO was with JA6GT on 80m cw just two hours before New Year.

December QSO statistics:

DX 77 (72 on cw, 5 on ssb)
EU 36 (30 on cw, 6 on ssb)
QSO total 113 (102 on cw, 11 on ssb)
