This is a short report on EX/HB9DUR Guest op activity was successful this time. No power cutout in spite of a short thunderstorm last night .1587 QSO on SSB in about 16 hours
Main operated bands were 15, 17 and 20m.
First experience of being called in pile-up on 15m with HUGE signals from EU and JA simultaneously and USA in the back.
Logged on iPad using Ham Log App which is a good alternative to paper log as I could not bring any notebook with me.
I had a nap for 2.5 hrs and thereafter spend the day with the family.
Hope to be QRV again in a week or so prior my departure.
Thanks once again George EX8MAT for your hospitality and kindness.
I plan to be qrv over the weekend from EX8MAT’s qth in Bishkek.
Starting approx at 05 UTC on Saturday 07 June until Sunday morning.
10/15/20m 2el quad
NOTE: 6m operations are difficult from Bishkek city due to a TV transmitter generating QRM on the band.
QSL VIA HOME CALL HB9DUR, LOTW, eqsl
I WILL REPLY TO ALL DIRECT RECEIVED QSL (the January 2014 Qso as well) during the month of July at my return.

As of today all EX/HB9DUR QSO are uploaded both on EQSL and on LOTW.
Paper QSL are under development with Cool QSL
This afternoon I have had an invitation to operate from George, EX8MAT shack just outside the city center for what is my first ham radio activity from Kyrgyzstan.
I made approx 340q on 15m in 2 hrs time and a dozen of qso on 20m, but condx were not optimal on 20..
Due to lack of time I ended after 14 UTC.
Due to excess baggage I haven’t brought any own rtx nor antenna with me. So it a a casual operation from local ham shacks.
Hope to be able to be qrv again and possibly on other bands. I will stay until 06 Jan 2014.
