CQWW SSB D4C last minute category change

Look for me on 40m



High level of interferences between 10m and 20m are compromising the D4Z (IZ4DPV) entry.
HB9DUR and IZ4DPV have struggled for two days in trying to remove interferences with significant results but still not optimal. This situation was caused again by the visit of Hurricane Fred.

Therefore, the decision to change D4C (HB9DUR) entry from 20m to 40m was taken.
