News from C21HA

C21HA antennaThe first week went away of our 4 weeks activation of Nauru. The antennas in the sea need daily maintenance. The sea is very rough and destructive. The high tide is cc. 2 meters with 1-1.5 meter high very strong waves. We can do the maintenance during the low tide, at noon. The temperature is in the sun around is 40 Co or even more, so it is very hard to working 2-3 hours in the sun every day. The propagation was not really good in this week. The low bands, 160 and 80 meters are very noisy. The equatorial noise level is S5-S9. Not really possible to work on the low bands.

The higher bands are quite O.K. to NA/SA direction. AS and OC is not a problem from here. However the EU openings are very poor. The signal level from EU is around the noise level. Very difficult to copy the EU stations. Everyone from Europe are like a very small pistol here. The operating attitude also does not help us to copy the stations. We are fully aware of the EU opening times on different bands. We are fully aware of the propagation. We try to do our best but needs your help to working with EU station. EU stations, please be patient, please listen, listen and listen. Repeat your full callsign three, four times with 20-25 wpm maximum. If we can copy a fragment only, please do not call if it does not match with your callsign. Repeat your full callsign two three times. Please check the on line log. Do not work again if you are in the log. You must cooperate. We also have strong QRM from near station, probably from VK, in the pile-up window and as well as on our QRG. It is a pity and we can not understand this attitude.
