Some good DX reception with the QCX Mini today.
- New Zealand x 2
- Australia x 6
- Antarctica x 2
- Lots of USA stations including DX to California, Nevada and Utah
Nice that my peanut power WSPR from the QCX Mini is being heard in Antarctica again (great to also be heard in PY1 – Brazil).
In fact, it seems I am being received by both RX at the German Research station:
Curious that I am also being heard by the MV Polarstern in the North Atlantic (interesting that she’s not signing with the suffix maritime mobile, /MM) although she does seem to be moving south. Moving down south for the 21/22 season?
A bit of research on Google: The vessel is en route to DE BRV>>ES PLA, sailing at a speed of 10.5 knots and expected to arrive there on Dec 16, 08:00.
Interesting that my WSPR also received by the Canadian Arctic station VY0ERC at the same time as I am being received in Antarctica. The QCX Mini 40m is a marvel!
