Propagation was at CW levels for at least a portion of the session as WG2XJM and WH2XZO complete a CW QSO.  This was Doug’s first QSO on 630-meters.  Doug indicates that the QSO was easy in spite of the QRN.  He gave Eric a RST 569 and Eric returned with a RST 549.  Congrats on the first QSO!  I look forward to getting a round-table together soon!

In the east, VE1VDM, W1TAG/1 and WD2XSH/17 were able to report European stations during the session.

While no JA reports were made outside of Japan during this session, there is a tremendous amount of activity all over Japan.  Hopefully some of the Merv’s or Laurence’s  work will pay off soon in hearing or being heard again in Asia.
