A5A BHUTAN QTH

My Location@12:41,5/29 Babesa-Thimphu Expy, Thimphu, Bhutan http://m.google.com/u/m/dCY32E







May 29, 2012 from A5A Bhutan Dxpedition

Greetings from Bhutan. A couple notes to report. The past few days have been full of official meetings for Zorro and his international survey team (Harvard, Waseda, University of Tokyo, and SEISA) with the Bhutan Government officals. The Ministry of Education, Health, Economics, and even Bhutans Football (soccer) Team have been on the calendar discussing future needs. KL2A and ZL1GO were in on the action as well entertaining 20+ university students in the A5A shack for a live demonstration of the radio and introducing (more politely, urging) the very exciting reality that some in the room would become charter members of the future Royal Thimphu College Radio Club. We called CQ and answered a CQ by M0REX. The FGC is delighted to donate the radio and equipment including order an installation of a new first radio tower for the club. The ceremony is forthcoming.

The radio condx are very good to the needed areas and we are working hard to be available on those paths. We have seen long openings in our darkness on the high bands, it is quite exciting. We have been running the 6m beacon most of the day and are working on the lower bands now as well. Club Log is underway as JJ1LIB has departed back to Japan and will officiate these duties daily. Please keep your comments coming, follow us on Twitter for live updates, and thank you for your support! We are honored to add one more to your rankings.

Excerpt from a post sent to Spokane DX Associations Mail group on May 4, 2012

Gentlemen,

17m indeed is their strongest band (below in blue) with 20 and 15 trailing.

Note that overall, they are excelling on 17m with more Q's and countries than any other band/mode:

Have you tried their Map Propagation Feature? 

Here is the best link for tinkering with the data:
http://www.clublog.org/charts/?c=7O6T&a=gc&embed=1#map 

You can ask it: "What time are they working Zone 3 on any particular band?"

1.  Click the map on the Zone 3 area
2.  Click the bar on the graph representing the band you are interested in (try 17m)
3.  The Graph resets, and now you see 17m highlighted in Orange. 

Note: 434 Q's in Zone 3 on 17m (at time of writing)
Note: The graph depicts the times of these Q's.  Majority worked at 03z and 16z

40m shows 3 Q's so far in Zone 3 at 01 and 02 zulu timeframe.

Good luck in the pile ups!
