This weekend DXing on late Saturday evening and Sunday midday (09.00utc >).
- The highlight was to hear my first Greek SW-pirate, Spider Radio on 6925 kHz which also QSLed very quickly by e-mail. Click >>
- The other impressive moments were on Saturday when Dutch Radio Barones and Blue Star having QSO with 4 Serbian stations around 1700 kHz. Very funny to listen because none of the Serbians did not speak English.
