After chasing the DXpedition to Mayotte for several days with conditions getting worse by the day due to Aurora, I finally managed to work them on 160 Meters. Strangely enough they disappeared completely after our contact and no signals were heard on the rest of the 160 Meter band either. I suspect some kind of solar event must have occurred causing these strange conditions.

Signals were weak and almost buried in the noise . I can only imagine the noise must have been horrendous at their end…yet again the Arctic King came through for country #194 worked on Top Band.
A wee dram of Ardbeg Corrywreckan to celebrate was definitely called for. Skál!
