20 Meter Opening

Postby SWL » Wed Mar 30, 2016 11:37 pm

I was tuning around on my SDRPlay RSP and came across a huge CW pileup on 20 meters. I never did hear the DX station but it must have been a trophy. The pileup is an amazing 23kHz wide. :shock:

Really enjoying the SDRPlay and HDSDR.

Same picture could be seen (actually it looked much worse here) on 30m and shortly on 40, that was most likely VK0EK but I couldn't pick them up in the massive pileup either (condx were not gud anyway). :)

I saw that yesterday night. I think it was FT4JA, very rare and only on air since one day or so.
I heard them this morning on 17m. VK0EK was on air as well. FT4JA pulled all the big stations away from him so I could get him myself finally.

You see the difference in the attached screen shot. VK0EK (non-) pile up is on the left side of the marker.
