Way to go, Gary.

Nice going on 6DL.  Maybe Indonesia and Philippines are next? They're not that much different from Western Australia in terms of bearing and distance.

The rain and wind were pounding the ocean beach this morning but a ruggedly-built

surf brought in a lot of weird stuff that normally would seem unlikely on a 
hand-held portable.

531-6DL was probably the star of the session, shutting down the usual More FM/ PI snarl 
from the "Mother Country" around 1625. The Kiwis were once again pounding in 
during most of the session, with even the extremely rare 585-Radio Ngati Porou making an 
appearance // 603 at 1612. With 540-2AP not yet signing on Rhema in NZ was ruling the 
roost, and the Kiwi Radio Sport relays on 774 and 792 were sending the Aussies to the 
showers. 936 was all ABC, though, with the awesome Sunset Skip signal from 936-Chinese 
Voice long gone. Despite repeated attempts to track down anything north of the Equator 
only 972-HLCA managed to show up-- and it have a pretty potent signal at 1630. Not a 
single Japanese, North Korean or Chinese signal, though. Go figure!

73 and Good DX,
