Some readers may remember my Blog post where I wasn't quite 100% sure if I had worked SV2ASP/A Monk Apollo from Mount Athos on 10 Meters last year. Read post.
It turns out that I did work him, I was in his log, and I did get his QSL card a month later for an all time new one (ATNO). But this post is about this morning on 17 Meters.
I saw the DX Cluster spot for SV2ASP/A on 17 Meters this morning, and even though I don't have a 17 Meter beam, I had some luck previously loading up the KT-34XA tribander on 17 with a tuner so I figured why not try it again? I took a listen for Monk Apollo, and I also took a listen on his receive frequency and of course, it was a mob scene. But, you never know until you try, right? I must be living right. The QRM "parted" and his signal peaked...
Here's the recording: N0UN working SV2ASP/A on 17 Meters December 31, 2012.
Pretty cool to snag him on the last day of 2012.
2012's been a good year. Here's hoping 2013 is even better! 73
