Today saw another 30+ Japanese into the log, the majority first time contacts too. Amazing to hear calling me was T88KH from Palau. First contact I was sceptical of a pirate or not but Harry (JH3KEA) called in again later where we managed a decent qso.
Officially the Republic of Palau (Palauan: Beluu er a Belau), is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean, some 500 miles (800 km) east of the Philippines and 2,000 miles (3,200 km) south of Tokyo.
Palau enjoys a tropical climate all year round with an annual mean temperature of 82°F (28 °C). Rainfall can occur throughout the year, averaging a total of 150 inches (3,800 mm). The average humidity over the course of the year is 82%, and although rain falls more frequently between July and October, there is still much sunshine. All in all, quite an eventful few hours.
