Thanks for watching QRZ.com and greetings from the centre of Germany!

Update 2015-03-11: QSL Cards arrived till today have been send by Mail today. Those received via bureau will be send end of the month via bureau. If you want to take a look if you are in the log book then please visit http://www.clublog.org/logsearch/6y6n and enter your call sign.

Update 2014-12-17: The dx-pedition 6Y6N from Jamaica has ended on Dec. 17th, 2014. With the help of Josh, 6Y5WJ and the superb service from the Spectrum Management Authority the license was extremly fast issued. 

I worked 6,060 QSOs in the CQWW CW contest and it was not the last time being QRV from Josh's 6Y5WJ fantasic QTH. Finally I ended up with 11,000 QSOs.

Some thoughts after the contest using the FT-857 @ 100 Watts and a vertical:

It would be great if hams would listen to the call sign sent by me, rather than to use the spotted call signs in the cluster. Unfortunately too many stations called me, although they did not hear me. I know that 6Y6N might not be the easiest call sign, but it was sent after every QSO and can therefore not be a problem. Spots in the cluster reached from BY6N, BY5N, 6Y5N and what else. Why do these guys not just follow the rules described in the dx code of conduct?



It would make life much easier for all of us. Please visit  http://www.dx-code.org for more details. Clusters are nice to have as long as they are used properly.             

In large pile-ups, I increased the CW speed to 40 wpm and went down to 24 wpm, when the pile gots smaller so that everybody had a chance to work Jamaica.

Before you send a QSL card, please check first at http://www.clublog.org/logsearch/6y6n if you are in the log. If not, it does not make sense to send a card as I will not send cards if not in the log. QSL cards will be responded after mid of March 2015 as I need first to check how many cards are needed and then I will order them. Bureau cards are welcome, however, if cards arrive later than 1 year after the dx-pedition (31st of December 2015) I will no longer respond to it. It still happens that cards come in from the Mauritius visit in 2010. Below please find the QSL card design that will be sent out mid of March 2015. 

Please note, I do not use any WEB based QSL Services for the DX-peditions 6Y6N/FH/FR/FG/3B8.

Mayotte and Reunion Island in 2013.

Please check the logbook if you are in.

FH/DK9PY from Nov. 05 until Nov. 11 2013

Online Logbook www.clublog.org/logsearch/FH/DK9PY

FR/DK9PY from Nov. 11 until Nov. 22 2013

Online Logbook www.clublog.org/logsearch/FR/DK9PY

Do not send a card if you are not in the log. If you are not in the log, no QSO likewise no QSL! Cards received without IRC or porto cost will be answered via bureau.

All cards received direct or via bureau have been acknowledged.

10 MHz was hard to work at the FR location due to local QRN (neon lights). 40m, 80 m and 160 was just impossible. Please excuse if I was unable to hear u.

Please note QSLs can be sent via bureau or direct. Cards will only be sent after I have received one. And again, Web based QSL services will NOT be used!!!

The FH/DK9PY QSL card picture was taken by myself and shows the nice Plage de N'Gouja at the Jardin Maore Hotel at the south east coast of Mayotte. A very nice place to relax with excellent personnel who were very interested while installing my antenna system between the trees. The propagation towards EU and US is not really good, however it worked pretty well. The QSL card above shows the famous and impressive Baobab trees, that do not have leaves during the hot season, but started flowing. For additional details go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baobab_tree.

The FR/DK9PY QSL card picture was taken by myself and allows a breathtaking view into the Cirque de Mafate. Further details of La Reunion can be found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cirque_de_Mafate.

The Guadeloupe (2011) and Mauritius (2010) QSL cards can be seen below. Check the online Logbook www.clublog.org/logsearch/FG/DK9PY or www.clublog.org/logsearch/3B8/DK9PY if we had been in contact.

All direct mailed and via bureau QSL cards for FG and 3B8 have been responded. QSL cards received via bureau will be answered via bureau but only if I receive a card. So if you need one, send one. I will not use any WEB based QSL services. Only direct or via bureau.


I am a radio engineer, planning commercial digital radio systems, e.g. DMR, TETRA and ASTRO. My passion is shortwave dx communication almost 100% in CW. I like high speed morse code and hope to meet you on the band for a chat. There are many PC programs available to improve the CW skills and increasing speed capabilities, see i.e. http://www.rufzxp.net or http://www.ji0vwl.com/cw_freak_net_e.html

Contesting is another funny hobby within the hobby and hope to see you there.
