DX exclusive for San Antonio - update from ZC4 - Cyprus

Lee Besing

Got another update from David, he apparently
allowed for the time change in his saying
"Tuesday" arrival. as of 6pm on Monday 07/21, he
says he will depart in 6 hours, so that means he
is in the air as I type this message. He said
that the other operator is leaving the island, so
he will be the only ham on the island during this stay. Good luck!

No RTTY at the club shack Lee, sorry. ZC4 is
deplete..I guess I will be the only op on the
island as the Manager Ian, ZC4OS is moving back
to the UK. ZC4 was never a RTTY island, but
funnily enough was extremely active on 6M -
weight precludes me bringing a rig out for that! David.
PS take off in about 6 hours. Hpe to have some qso's with Texas yee ha

He's confirmed that he is enroute to Cyprus now,
and will try to be on 20m around 14230, and will
be on the air around 0300 UTC, which I think
translates to around 10pm local time. If he
says "starting Tuesday @ 0300", would that mean
we ought to listen Monday night?

Hi Lee

In case you did not receive my last email, I
am back on ZC4-land on Tuesday for a week and
hope to hook up with some of your locals during the period.

Aim to get on 20m say around 14230+- the qrm
around 0300 UTC, no doubt once I hook up the
States I will be 'spotted' on the dx nets so
keep an eye on them! The east coast will put up
a big wall as usual but I will call qrz for Texas!

Hey guys, thought I'd pass this opportunity
along to you. This guy worked the Christmas
Parade in 2007 over in Sattler, Texas, while he
was in town for a training session (he was an
instructor from the UK Royal Air Force).

Heads up for the locals – back on Cyprus from
22 July for a week. Aim to be up on 20m early
morning 0300UTC ish, probably up around 14220
or something. Once I get a clear spot I am sure
I will be ‘spotted’ – if you miss one morning –
I will return the next one around the same freq
and call cq for Texas! I may even text you my freq if that’s not cheating!!

I will listen/call for Texas – especially your
policeman friend – I have his call at home.

Qsl info is via my home call G0OAB.

Best Regards to all
