VK9XSP took part in the CQ WW DX SSB Contest, making about 4.000 QSOs (mostly on higher bands). Most of the time there was one station active in the contest.
We could observe a kind of propagation blackout on Monday. We were trying 40 meters during the night after the contest but bands were very, very noisy. We could hear stations calling but it was very hard to copy and complete callsigns. Then right after our sunrise we had propagation opening to the U.S.A. on bands 17m – 10m and then there was complete propagation blackout and we could here no stations for some hours (regardless of a band). Then bands seemed to open again.
We are trying 6 meters but no QSOs on the magic band so far.
