The Andaman and Nicobar islands (VU4) were activated by a team put togerher by the ARSI. This was a good chance to work this entity on all bands and modes. The operation was good, as expected, as we had some pretty good ops out there. I managed to work them on 13 band/mode slots.
Found Palestine, E4X on 15m RTTY and managed to work him in a couple of tries. He was operating split and I worked him 2 up. All time new one for me! QSL info is via EA5RM.
After many months of inactivity, it was great to get back on the air and make a few contacts! The last time I was active was for a couple of days in Feb. ’10 when I participated in the WPX RTTY contest.
I was on PSK on 20m and heard some nice signals. It was also good to work VU2ATN/Atanu on PSK for the first time.
This is also the first time I used the new D945GCLF2D-powered shack computer for two way contacts. Earlier, I had tested it with CW Skimmer and SoftRock 20m SDR on the Reverse Beacon Network.
