My First 6m QSO
Within 6 weeks of setting up home in Honiara I was on 6m. 6
watts from a Kenwood TV506 to a quad loop slung in a tree. This was VHF like I
had never heard.
My first QSO on 6m was with JA2TTO on 24th April 1979. This was the first of
many thousands of JA QSOs.

50MHz Awards from Cycle 21
Back in 1978 it was fairly obvious that it was going to take a long time to
get DXCC on 6m from the SW Pacific. However, I did manage to collect a few
obscure and not so obscure awards from H44 on 6m during Cycle 21. Click
