QSOmonth - March 2009

The 80m vertical, which is my only antenna, works still fine, though getting dx on other bands than 80m is tougher. Any dx seems to attract huge number of callers immediately when it is spotted on dxcluster. And if the dx is rare the band police will be there, too. My overall DXCC count hit 240 mark in March and 200 on 40m.

March started well in qsoing terms and ended a bit short, but still over 100 qsos. First March qso was with EA6NB on 30m cw on the 1st March and last on 29th with BW9/DL2JRM/P (IOTA AS-103) on 80m cw.

DX 90 (86 on cw, 4 on ssb)
