The month was great and filled with a lot of good DXs on many bands. Even 10 meters showed some signs of life. Several major DX efforts took or have been taking place as well as resident DXs were nothing short of being active. TL8TT did a great job on all bands. An example to be followed and copied. The team did the homework and seemed to know with precision where, when and who. Their dedication to pulling out weak, long-distance, low band signals is admirable and highly appreciated by all low band enthusiasts. Kudos. On the contrary, XX9D outing by my own judgment as well as by comments of other DXers was disappointing to DXers in NA and SA save some big guns that were able to punch through the QRM/QRN levels at Macao and probably mediocre operators’ skills. Going away with a advertised NA focus and working JA’s and EU’s ain’t something you get credits for. Yes, we all understand that Macao is plagued with noise and it’s hard to find a good place for NA and SA but some have in the past.Next. TZ4AM has been heard and worked on 160. We hope it will be a lasting effort since Mali is in high demand on 160. Nicolas, TY2AC began operating on 160. Discovering the split mode he increased the number of happy clients. Well done, brother, carry on! VP6EU is in progress. Skillful operators with good knowledge of bands and demand, they have been doing well thus far covering EU’s (the toughest) SR and SS on low bands. TX5T (Austral Isls.) with a lightening-fast LoTW uploads but lacking 80-160 operation has been heard and worked on 40 to 10 meters. 5A1AL, Abubaker shows up sporadically on 30 meters as well as LoTW-oriented 7X3FG.
