New Ones on 80m and 160m

March 27 Update

QRN was high, then all of a sudden PJ5/SP2GCJ signals went up a tad and noise levels dropped.  I was able to make contact at 0122 UTC on 160m for #118 on 160m

Worked TJ2TT on 80m for #162

March 22 Update

Worked OZ5DX on 80m for #161

March 20th Update

3B8XF Mauritius - Nigel Cawthorne confirmed for #160 on 80m

Also worked 3C0W  and PJ5/SP2GCJ Saba and St Eustatius on 160m.  Without internet can't confirm whether the 3C0W is a good QSO

March 14th Update

80m continues to be a productive band.
#154 3C3W Equatorial Guinea on 03March
#155 Z2LA Zimbabwe on 05 March
#156 XR0YD Easter Island 05 March
#157 TY7C Benin on 09 March
#158 TN5R Republic of the Congo on 10 March
#159 3C0W Annobon 13Mar

On 160m - CU2DX Azores confirmed in LOTW for #115.

Got new ones on 160m
#116 XR0YD - Easter Island
#117 TN5R - Republic of the Congo.    Solar wind effects killed 160m propagation.  It took all kinds of tricks - diversity receive and audio peaking filter to dig the really weak signal out

March 3rd Update

Was able to get 3C3W on 80m CW on the evening of 03March for #154.

3D2EU Rotuma Island DXepedition  is underway - was able to get them on 80m and 160m on consecutive days on the early morning grey line #114 on 160m and #153 on 80m on 27Feb
