Hearty congrats to Bob, KK6EK and the entire VK0EK team for a prestigious prize of winning the October 2016 QST Cover Plaque Award.
We are so very proud and thankful for this cover and very well written article by Leader Bob, KK6EK. Please consider voting for it for the October 2016 QST Cover Award:
As promised, once we received the laptops back from Heard Island, we would reconcile all laptops with the master N1MM+ log, and more than 100 QSO’s have been recovered. We hope you were the lucky one – and if you have any questions – please contact our QSL Manager, Tim, M0URX:
We would like to thank Pete, W6OP, and Mike, KJ4Z for their most excellent efforts finding and recovering these QSO’s. The majority were recovered from a failed laptop that did not sync with the N1MM+ Master log.
Recovered QSOs have been uploaded to OQRS http://www.m0urx.com/oqrs/logsearch.php
They will be uploaded to Clublog and LOTW very soon.
You might remember Ruan was featured during the DX-pedition as making a QRP QSO using his portable station. He sent the full article that features Hans-Peter HB9BXE, featuring both Hans-Peters many DX-peditions and his excellent operating skill as well as details regarding the 30M Four Square that Hans – Peter and a friend he worked with regarding its technical design.
Here we have Hans – Peter on Heard Island and other DX-peditions . . .
Here are some of the 30M Four Square technical details, and finally . . .
BA6QH at his DX Post.
Thanks very much Ruan – we really appreciate it!
Please enjoy this excellent video made by Vadym, UT6UD who was one of the “dynamic duo” on Top Band (along with Dave, K3EL), and a major reason why VK0EK broke Top Band records from Heard Island:
Tim, M0URX reports that all of the QSL cards for requests received so far are in the mail:
Tim completed the processing of these QSL’s in record time, and Mike, KJ4Z provided all labels like a pro.
