My Gridsquare (JO54) seems to be very rare - what is not bad at all ... But throughout the past months I received cards for QSOs mainly on 6m that I never made. Those envelopes are often filled with a good count of $$$. So I am very accurate with logging my radio contacts and those who have made a good contact and have sent me a QSL (with or without $$$) will receive one from me by mail for sure.

50 MHz

30 June 2018 Very quiet day. Only late evening JW came in.
29 June 2018 A few JA were received, but all less then -15 dB
28 June 2018 A single NA station (NN4X) found its way into my receiver. All other were Europe with extremely strong signal sometimes. Some CW was heard as well. No contacts made. Again the OX6M was received.
27 June 2018 At 04:30 some VU stations were seen, and later several BA. No chance, FT8 was more than crowded.
26 June 2018 Worked 25 CW stations within 20 minutes and I had pile-up. Such experiences became rare these days.
25 June 2018 EX was the only DX in the afternoon. Later some Aurora came up and I heard the OX6M beacon again. Both JW beacons were strong and I could work new grid LA9VFA (KQ40). Lots of activity in Northern EU. In the early moring hours the aurora became stronger and XP3A was copied for a while.
24 June 2018 Came home late and only heard the OX6M beacon (and some EU in FT8 of course ...)
22 June 2018 only EU so far
21 June 2018 FT8: a single JA found the way into my RX.
20 June 2018 FT8: several BA (China) were up to -10 dB, D41seen in the morning. In the afternoon some W4, PV8, TF UN, 9K copied. At 21 UT band opened shortly for W4.
19 June 2018 FT8: only A92 of interest
18 June 2018 FT8 hrd: YV5JDT and HI
15 June 2018 Good activity in FT8 within Europe, nothing else outside EU so far.
14 June 2018 Again around 06 UT signals from Japan and BD3BDB (OL69) up to -12 dB. Nothing in other modes - No activity in JT65. Later Band was open to D4 and S01.
13 June 2018 FT8: Several stations from Japan were seen at maximum -16dB around 06 UT. The only other DX seen was S01.
12 June 2018 FT8: Stations from HI, VP2, FM5, 9Y, PJ4 and PV8 were seen with partially strong signals. Did not call because all were worked in CW before.
11 June 2018 DXwise only WP4 was heard
10 June 2018 In FT8: Many EU and WP4 and some W4 from Florida heard. Some CW QSOs.
09 June 2018 Hrd FT8: UN3GX and all of Europe. Worked 7X2KF (JM06) for new grid in CW. This was followed by a number of CW contacts in EU.
08 June 2018 Lots of EU FT8 activity.
07 June 2018 FT8 hrd some stations K1, W3, W4 aereas quite weak only.
06 June 2018 FT8: worked W4SO & N3XX and heard some more from the same aerea
05 June 2018 No DX heard, only EU in FT8.
04 June 2018 FT8 wkd: HI3T (FK49) Hrd FT8: N4, W5 and XE2JS. In CW HI3T was heard strong.
