I’ve noticed that my operating tends to go in phases, sometimes I’ll work just 40m, or other times I’ll be operating exclusively on SSB and at the moment I’m in a datacomms phase where a huge chunk of my time is spent operating the data modes.

So to kick off, on day #237  I first worked W8DOG, Glen on 20m JT65 followed by a nice chat with GB3CPM, Peter on 40m SSB.  I then had a contact with EV1P, Vlad on 20m PSK31 before jumping onto 10m FM to talk to Yan, M0YNK and Chris, M6GSD, both in Colchester.  I rounded up the evening by talking to OM3TWM, Vlado on 40m.

I only had two contacts on day #238, firstly I worked Sergey, RD3AAD on 20m JT65 before talking to CT3MD, Jose on 15m SSB.

I worked a lot more people on day #239 though, firstly I had a QSO on 40m JT65 with W9II, Joel.  This was at six minutes past midnight and the band was nicely open but it was late, I was tired and I went to bed!  In the morning I spoke to EF5DY, Salva on 20m and then switched over to RTTY to give away some points in a contest.  The bands were in pretty poor condition that afternoon so I just worked a few on 20m: GM0NBM, RA6DE, GM0FGI, IC8TEM, UN1L, and RG9A.   In the evening I gave away a few more points, this time on 40m: F5ODF, EM2G, F5VKT, LA7HJA, EO3Q, S53M, EA1AKS, LZ8E and YL5T
