The DXpedition continues!


I spent two days/nights (Oct 30-31) with my old friends Stephen 9M6ET and Senny 9M6IQ.

Stephen and Senny's 3 children were fascinated with my CW operating!
(Bob) and Ashley, Arnold and Amanda.

Here is Amanda "helping" me send CQ! All the kids helped me work the pileups!
I also taught them about the CQ Zone which comes up for each QSO put in the log.
They would look up the zone on "dad's" Yaesu map on the shack wall!
I had a most enjoyable two days/nights visiting with my old friends and I enjoyed some operating as well. 
Made some 440 QSO's with 100 watts and no line noise, including many NE USA the first evening using "ET's" IC-735 on 20 meter CW!

Stephen and Senny live on a large tract of land in a rural area on the outskirts of Keningau.
It includes these fish ponds which were started by his grandfather many years ago.
Stephen continues to stock and maintain them today. 
Also on the grounds are a quarry, rock crushers, asphalt plant and concrete plant, all part of his
road and pavement construction business.

The boys are back in town!
