Today I decided to have a listen on the bands, as I was fed up sitting around my room either working on my dissertation or some other form of assignment which needed completing. I started off on 17m noticed some RTTY and worked a UA4 and a RD4.

After this I moved down to 20m which seemed rather lively on RTTY for a change and after a quick CQ call I worked UN1, US6, YO6, UA6, IZ8, W4, UR5, UA1, VE1, G4 I was pleased that the band opened to the States and Canada.

Later on I decided to start setting up DM780 for SSTV, as it’s not a mode I’ve tried so hopefully later today I will have had a QSO.
