Well its just over a week since the NOV’s began allowing UK Amateurs to use the ‘Q’ in their Callsigns to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth. Both John GQ4RCG (G4RCG) and myself MQ0OXO (M0OXO) have been qrv when time allowed and despite very poor band conditions we seem to be very popular which is always good news!
Conditions are definately a lot poorer than they were early last week so all we can do is call and hope for a response. 20M on Friday was different with short skip allowing inter-G to be worked. personally I spoke to Stations in Ireland, Norfolk, Scotland, Exeter and Devon & Cornwall. All the stations (including those using low power) we very strong. the biggest signal was from Finland and he was 60db over with me.
So far GQ4RCG and MQ0OXO have logged just under 2300 callsigns. Please call us whenever you wish, multiple bands and all modes are available should you need ‘MQ0’ or ‘GQ4’ on other band slots. For Qsl information click here.
