Wallis & Futuna Islands on 17m


Wow, this one came from nowhere! After struggling all morning not hearing much DX at all up pops a really strange call sign FWD2A Yuji in Wallis & Futuna Islands on 18.140 MHz up 5 – 10. Yuji says that the call sign may change during this activity. It appears that the licensing authority made a mistake on the callsign.
This was DXCC Worked 286 for me, this for me was one of those real big buzz moments in Amateur Radio! Just awesome,  and with the sun spot poor conditions continuing just lately, new ones are getting few and far between.

Much closer to home is MU/PA4N Guernsey worked on 17m this afternoon also for a new band slot on 17m.
