Worked United Arab Emirates - A61FK

Image
I was lucky enough this morning to run across A61FK calling CQ from the United Arab Emirates on 20m this morning.  I turned the yagi towards the NE and switched on the amplifier. There was quite a bit of QRM, but I was able to use filtering to calm it down and receive A61FK at a real 59 in the clear.  I gave several calls, and then finally got a reply.  That puts me at 213 DXCC entities worked!
The United Arab Emirates is a country in Western Asia at the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south and west, as well as sharing maritime borders with Qatar to the west and Iran to the north.

Worked Marquesas Islands - TX7T

Image
I saw a DX station TX7T from Marquesas Islands spotted on 20m via the cluster.  As with most good DX, I had no idea where Marquesas Island was located. I looked it up, found the bearing, turned the yagi, switched WSJT-X to F/H Hound mode and started watching the decode.  I did see them and with a pretty solid signal. I gave them a call and it was an easy new country in the log!


The Marquesas Islands are a group of volcanic islands in French Polynesia, an overseas collectivity of France in the southern Pacific Ocean.
