Things have been busy - a quick update

I've been very busy lately, launching my new book, 'Land of the Ever-Living Ones'. I've only really had time to work the VU7AG dxpedition (country #302 for me), but little else. I am glad to report that I have nine slots so far with them, including 80m CW and 40m RTTY, two slots I am very proud of. The dxpedition is working from Lakshadweep Islands in the Indian Ocean.

Tonight, there are great conditions on 40 metres CW. In the past few minutes, I've worked VA7OO in Vancouver and also W6OAR in California, both using my Butternut vertical. Fantastic. Right, time for bed!

Update: Got WO7R in Arizona before switching off the equipment!

  2. Good news about the book Anthony. I was thinking of ordering one in advance but was too late. Too busy lately. I see that I can order one again now. Good to see you got VU7. I worked VU7RG back in 2007 on 12 and 10m when I still had a beam and more time to chase DX. You really are a top DXer :-). 73, Bas
