STOP PRESS Yes I will be in C5 for BERU 12th to 17th March

CW (yes I will be the slow one!), if in contest wihich is 14/15 likely to ignore non BERU on 80/40/20/15 &10

Will also be on 30, 17 and 12m

Expect some SSB /P from the beach and some digital, especially at night (UK hours).

C5/M1KTA likely although applied for a short call too (if get it will update here).


Yes I will TRY to activate AF-060 on this trip, please LISTEN, do not trust the cluster I may be on the mainland.


Hi everyone, if you are looking me up because we worked on the air, thanks for the QSO.


  • Elecraft K2, couple KX3 and playing with a Hardrock-50 power amp for DX trips.
  • Several softrok and RTL USB SDR dongle things
  • I killed my Yaesu FT-817ND
  • UHFSDR (almost complete)


  • Homebrew G7FEK 40M/80m @ ~20'
  • Hustler 6BTV multiband vertical (I added homwbrew 30, 17 and 12)
  • Numerous wire dipoles maybe teporary put up, usually sloping to wards the DX
  • No rig connected to a 70cm/2M/6m Diamond vertical

Back from SM7 ... lots of fun and loads in the log both inside and outside RSGB IOTA contest.

Check out OQRS to request a qsl card (although I prefer BURO).

https://secure.clublog.org/logsearch/M1KTA and change the callsign to the one you want like SM7/M1KTA/P or C5/M1KTA etc...

If not there (look in LoTW as well) then might be I have messed up... please email me details of the QSO you expect and I'll check the logs. In KH8 I had loads tail end over the others confirmation from same DXCC so I logged the wrong call sometimes. Oops. I tend to have audioso I'll listen to it to confirm if was a mistake.

C5 (Gambia)

Yes I did abandon BERU 2014 contest. Some cw ops were way too fast and would not QRS for the whole of the qso, it stopped being fun and I did not want to send in log that would read like an UBN report rather than a contest log. I am a slow cw op so why after a couple of exchanges to get callsigns right then send me a serial number once and TU at 30 wpm and evaporate! Ho hum... even though I was the DX that  is the difference between contest and DX chasing.

I note plenty of G and non-G stations 'found' me outside BERU on WARC bands

Apologies to those that tried there were some idiots on the bands causing QRM.

In 2012 I tried to activate AF-060 Bijol Islands.... no luck... this time I managed it... only for 90 mins though between tides all qso were 15m SSB, already had qsl saying was great to manage me but was a cw qso on 17m sri I was not on AF-060 please LISTEN.

qsl via LoTW DONE and club log DONE

For a real card OQRS or card QSL VIA M1KTA
