Logs, Feb. 17

Today started somewhat frustrating on the radio.  There was loud local noise for the first few hours, then stations on 48 m would c/d just as they were fading in here (of course they were fading out in Europe).  For example, I heard 10 seconds of Tante Foek on 6250 before she moved to mw.  Thanks to the panthers (Pink and Black) for keeping 48 m alive.

Sometimes, however, patience is rewarded.  Calipso broke through the noise on 1638, followed by a QSO between Calipso and Jaguar Radio from Serbia (my reception of a Serbian pirate!)

15069,9 . 1458 . Bluestar Radio, Van Halen “Jump”, Beatles “Yesterday”, 25332

Radio Calipso, talk and music, heard greetings, “Little Green Bag” at 0008, more greets, ID, 24331, followed by QSO between Calipso and Jaguar Radio from Serbia.  Calipso was quite clear for a while, and I heard much talk from Jaguar, including several “ok”’s and mentions of Calipso.  Following the QSO, Jaguar gave a ham sign (or skype ID?) many times with phonetic letters.
