Yesterday, the wind blowed our 20m and 160m antennas. We could fix it quickly.
We achieve nice rates every day, it’s positive for us.
The best bands are 17 and 20m , openings on 12 and 10 are very short in the afternoon, and again shortly before sunset to south america.
Lowbands are very difficult, working greyline and sunset is like impossible, we have very loud noise and quasi no reception. We changed 2 times the beverages and will try another solution tonight.
Night propagation is awful. From 2AM to sunrise, the bands are like dead. We hear nothing from nowhere on the whole bands. even our neighbour TN5R and his pileup was ureadable.
This morning we tried FT8 on 80 and 20m, it was the only possibility to make some QSOs with very weak signals, so this may happen in the next days more often. (please use Hound configuration in DXpedition mode or you won’t be decoded)
