#1060: WNJC Washington Township NJ 1360 conducted a DX test this morning, Sat. 12, 2020. It was audible on the Smøla SDR at 0431 UTC with some interference from probably R. Bienestar, Lima. The antenna is 700 meter long beverage directed 290 degrees. After 30 mins a QSL came from KC2DUX John, who says today’s test was with 1250 watts. Tomorrow the power will increase. This is my first QSL this season.
I have been quite inactive the last months, but the DX activity will increase after my retirement in October.
