27th March 2011

This morning at 08H56 local time, V521NAM and V51PJ achieved a new Africa record together with ZS6NK. Two QSO's where made making sure everything was correct.

Distance 1384 KM

Conditions where solid Q5.
We used 70.200 USB and FSK441 as modus. Conditions used where meteor scatters and troposphere conditions during the test session. The entire QSO was over in less than 5 minutes and power output on both sides was 25W. The equipment I used was a 6 EL DK7ZB homebrew Yagi, a homebrew transverter and an Icom 706 mk2g. ZS6NK used a 9EL LFA.
