EJ6DX will be used during the CQ WPX SSB contest in March 2010. Mike, UA1OMX is joining me on the trip. We are going to compete in the Multi-Single category this year. EJ6DX antenna setup will include 3 band yagi, HF2V for 40 and 80 and Inverted V for lower bands. QSL via RX3RC. More…

Update on 6W QSLs: Roman, RX3RC has replied to all QSL requests that he received directly. I am waiting for a batch of new cards to arrive in Dublin in February and will reply to all “directs” by the end of the month. QSLs received via the bureau will be replied to later this year.
