Saipan and Tinian operation
Allen, KN6AH (Port KH ZERO) operated from Saipan and Tinian 26-30 March 1996. Solar conditions were not great, and his antenna was a 30 ft wire, but he managed to work 26 DXCC countries, including all continents but Antartica. He called many stations that did not listen for his weak signal! Many also did not bother to listen to the prefix of KH ZERO! QSL via home call.
