Conditons were mostly dismal this time, especially towards the Americas, where close to nothing was heard. A dedicated La Plata-antenna might have provided more results, but antenna opportunities in that direction are limited. In easternly direction, we started off on day 1 with a mix of Iran, Middle East and Ethiopia due to the heavily disturbed conditions, while on day 2 and 3 conditions changed slowly, allowing more Indian stations to come through along with all the Iranians. On the last day, many stations in India, Pakistan and the neighbouring countries were heard, but mostly fairly high powered stations only. Actually, the most fun was DXing Iranian regional stations, where we have so far noted local IDs on 13 different frequencies. Loggings include 1377 IRIB R Zahedan, 801 IRIB R Khorasan and tentatively 1125 IRIB R Qasvin. Gulf stations like 1152 Voice of Kerala and 1269 R Asia were also coming in well at times. A log will follow.

Hopefully conditions will be better next time, but life in the mountains in mid-October, with DXing, hiking, relaxing and enjoying good food and beverages is not that bad…. That’s why we keep coming back. Even a little work, which some of us had to this time, is easier done in a cabin at 1000 metres altitude than back at the workplace!

Hiking in the mountains

Leave a comment

We had a fine hike up to Spåtind today, with ever shifting views as we climbed from 1000 to 1414 m above sea level. The first picture shows the view to Jotunheimen with low clouds underneath the mountains. Autumn colours and no snow on the ground at Etnebu where we started, but gradually more on our way up, with a winter landscape on the top. Time to rest, and wait for Asia and the traditional fårikål!

Due to the disturbed conditions we hear a lot of Middle-East stations.
