Comment: Hi Peter,

I am a TV/FM/6M DX'er based in Sydney, Australia.
During April, I heard you frequently on 28.885. Nothing on 50.11 due to the short path distance.
During April I heard several chA2(55.25 MHz) tv video carriers from Central America and Mexico. My MARCH-MAY 2000 F2 DX log can be found at my home page.
Did you hear or log any 45-55 MHz TV, during April? I'm interested in clarifying some TV frequencies eg)KHON TV-2 Hawaii, and other Asian tx's.

recent issue of RADCOM. I was G3EGK and knew you from
the Manchester VHF group and S. m/chr Radio Club.
I think I worked you once from here in OZ. I was
wondering if you were still in H44 but obviously not.
I bet you are glad that you were not there recently!

signal into So. California, and was surprised that you
copied my QRP stn (10 watt rig and inv. vee in attic
of condominium). Will definitely QSL, to the Cornwall

off HF for several years due to antenna ban here and
was only able to recently put up hidden antennas and
qrp rig - so far no complaints from the neighbors!

Comment: Hi Peter:

The 10 meter band was very quiet when I first came across your calling CQ, and your signal was very clear but with just a bit of QSB. Here running a Force-12 C4XL (4 el on 10) at 20 meters up, and a Yaesu FT900C/AT. I also have a 3 element beam on 6 meters at 22 meters, however, no 6 meter rig as of yet.

Thanks for a FB QSO. 73/DX -- Jack, KN7Y (02:58 29/MAR/00 28MHz SSB -- sending QSL via bureau).
