Excellent condx & French Polynesia as an all time new one

fo4bmConditions have been excellent during the last few days. It’s really cool to get home from work at 18z and find 10 m still wide open. 🙂 US west coast booming in all evenings. Haven’t done too many QSOs myself, rather listening to several interesting conversations and simply enjoying the fine conditions. Heard NH6Y yesterday on short path, that’s been a first, only heard & worked Hawaii from here via long path in the past. Sorrily it was not his frequency but anyway, it clearly speaks for the condx. While scanning the band tonight I stumbled across FO4BM in French Polynesia on 28.520 MHz. Luckily he was not spotted on packet yet so I could easily work him with 55 signals both ways, a very difficult and rarely usable path on 10 m from here. So many thanks for an all time new one, Phil, much appreciated! As you can see guys, it really pays off to spin the dial yourself and not just rely on the packet cluster. My DXCC total is up to 288 now, 270 of them on 10 m. 🙂
