Nauru, C21HA, 2012

News from C21HA, VII

On the 24th day of our operation we exceeded the 30 kQSO. There are 30302 QSO in the log. During the last 3-4 days we were able to work on the top band. The equatorial noise level went down to S2-S3, which is still high to hear the EU stations. The second station actually has not been running for days. The imrovised Inverted L antenna is not effective enough to get over with 100 W not even to State side at this low sunspot number periode. (As you know, the motor of our SteppIR BigIR antenna gone at the transportation.) The 95 percent of the QSOs were made on one station.

We are really sorry that instead of two station we could actually run only 1.05 station.

We will go to QRT on 6th February, Tuesday, around 24 UTC. We have two days left but we will continue the efforts to working on 160 meter, as well. We will leave the island on 07 Februalry at 02z, which is 08 Febr 14:00 local time. We will have an overnight in Brisbane, than we will arrive home to Budapest on 10th Febr, Friday 12:00 MEZ.
