Updated E6AG Contact Map

I tracked down the log mapping site I have used before and can now demonstrate some of the difficulties I had with some paths. Most of Western Europe was indeed almost over the north pole – certainly I was heavily dependent on polar paths to reach EU from Niue! I am however pretty pleased with the spread of contacts across South America – a continent I rarely hear from home (for a similar reason – mostly polar paths over Antarctica).

  1. Hi Grant, any news on LotW uploads ? Your OQRS says logs uploaded however LoTW says “Last upload for E6AG: No log data found” ? You’d be DXCC Country Number 100 for me 🙂 de 3D2TS

      Phil, I am just waiting for my TSQL certificate from ARRL. I had a bit of a mixup in the sequence of applying for it and it also took me a couple of weeks to catch up with our ARRL card checker here in Adelaide to sight my license paperwork and pass on the endorsement to ARRL HQ. I am now hopeful that it is imminent and that I can post the LoTW log shortly!

    thanks Grant, all good and understood. Thanks for the contacts. Have stayed at the same place you were at in Niue for a week a few years back (no radio) and loved it.

      Still trying to sort it out… Nearly there hopefully and crossing my fingers to hear from ARRL in the next day or two. Who knows, I might just end up back there in April for the School holidays in 2018. Might only be for a week this time. Will definitely take a beam if we do – just trying to work out a plot for 30-160 to go along with it. A 12m spiderbeam pole and a 500W tuner and some sort of trapped vertical maybe – dont know yet.
