Top band DX-ing is real ham radio challenge. 160m is also referred as the "Gentleman's band"...
160 meters - DX-ing on the Edge...

R1FJT - Franz Jozef Land on Topband ...last month !

2. září 2008 v 17:10 | Petr, OK1RP |  Band reports
Do You have Franz Jozef Land QSO already on Topband?
If You was not lucky to do it then You have last chance to work Jack, R1FJT.
According to Jim's, W1YY/7 information published on Topband mailing list (see below) there is one of the last possibility to catch Jack who is 160m band enthusiast and focused on the Topband operation quite often.
"Jack, R1FJT told me tonight that he will be going QRT from FJL in four weeks, but that UA1PBN/1 and R1FJL (the club station) will still be active from FJL. Jack has been a regular on 160 (as well as the other bands), and always had a good signal on Top Band. Jack said he's in need of some warmer weather (I guess there's no beach season on FJL?).
So for those needing FJL on Top Band, try to catch him while he's still there, as I'm not sure there are any Top Band enthusiasts who will be there to pick up the slack when Jack leaves."

If I remember right I worked him but unfortunatelly not on Topband so another challenge for me for next few weeks to look for Jack on air.
QSL via UA4RC.

Hi Petr,

Thank you for the comment to my blog.

Is this you although there was a Japanese comment?

Since it was hard to believe, it has deleted. I'm sorry!

Surely the comment dated September 3 was received. Thanks!

The comment to an old report is restricting the comment for SPAM prevention.

Since my blog is only Japanese, please forgive.

Hope to see you on topband as soon as possible.

yes all of my comments to different articles (2 or 3 I am not sure) were in Japanese...:)

If it was so bad and obscure from me then I will not using Japanese any more :)

Also the comments to old articles are prohibited due to spam prevention?

Hi Petr,

The comment and the track back to a report old for SPAM prevention have restricted.

However, the English comment has not restricted.

It will be satisfactorily recognized from now on, since your comment was checked.

děkuji, na shledanou.
