SILENT KEY The well known lowband DXer Peter, DJ8WL, passed away after a short disease on April 26.
Phil, F5PHW, who was active as J28BS in April wrote a short statement about his 57 hours of operation. He made 5700 QSOs mostly in CW and worked 121 dupes though he sent "QSO b4" for several times. He does not understand why many big guns insist on a second or third QSO on the same band/mode. "Some stations seem to be totally deaf: CQ calls for more than one hour on my QRG and stations who keep calling though they were NOT asked for their call. In one case it took me eight minutes to finish one QSO. In this time I could have made 24 other QSOs. This must be horrible for DXpeditions like VK0IR."
RW1QM offers not only many QSL routes at http://www.ampr.spb.ru but also the sources he looks for his QSL information.
