June 3th 2010 Last night strong winds destroyed our Spiderbeam antenna in the middle of a
opening to NA. Fortunately we were able to repair it this morning. Also we have a problem with
the 6 meters amplifier but now it seems that it's working.
Still we have four sunrises before to leave. Best times to West Coast are between 03:00 and
June 4th : RTTY during this time frame .
June 5th : CW during this time frame .
June 6th : SSB during this time frame .
June 7th : CW during this time frame.
US General Class: Listen to SSB operator , he'll indicate from time to time to split up 14245 .
South America and Africa , Saturday 5th we'll turn the SSB and CW antennas towards your direction
around 18:00 UTC.
To EU Stations :The window to work North America from here is very short so , please ,
EU stand by when we are calling to NA.
We expect EU stations will help us.
There will be no answer to any european station while we are calling to North America or Outside EU.
THANK YOU !!.
