Uzbekistan on 17m


I decided to tune through the bands this morning to see if I could find any DX. Usually i am so busy with filing QSL cards that quite a lot of the time I end up being a “cluster tart” and not looking myself. I stopped on 18.150 MHz as I had come across a signal, time to turn the beam until it was S9.. Excellent here we go, wait a moment until I hear his callsign…. there it is, UK9AA Uzbekistan, I glanced at my band sheet and realised that this was a new band slot for me. Great… he has finished his QSO time to call. He comes straight back to me.. “M0URX you are 59 my name is Fedor in Tashkent The buzz working a new slot is great! It wasn’t until after the QSO that I checked my log and saw that my last contact with Uzbekistan was in April 2006 so almost 3 years ago. Let’s see what else I can find on the bands…..
