1. Two noteworthy loggings of shortwave broadcasters:
- RS Makadonias, Athens Greece, on 3-Jan-2010 at 2228 UTC on 7450 kHz in Greek with a fair signal.
- Glas Hrvatske, Croatia, via transmitter site at Wertachtal, Germany on 10-Jan-2010 at 0015 UTC. This was in Croatian on 7375 kHz. Good signal.
3. Logged a lot of radio amateurs on shortwave, mostly on the 40 metre band. All were stations in the continental United States.
4. I also made three loggings of amateurs on VHF. These are worth noting:
- VA3WLD, Downsview, ON. 23-Jan-2010 at 1945 UTC on 2 metres (144.215 mHz) in USB, in ARRL VHF contest. Noteworthy because this was the first station I've logged on 2 metres in SSB, and the first station I've ever worked on the air on 2 metres. I only recently got set up to operate on VHF.
- VA3WLD, Downsview, ON. 23-Jan-2010 at 1954 UTC on 50.130 MHz. He was working stations in the ARRL VHF contest. Worth noting because this is the first amateur station I've heard on the 6 metre band.
- VE3UBL, Pickering, ON. 23-Jan-2010 at 2226 on 50.058 MHz. The first 6 metre beacon I've logged.
