    Z66X - Kosovo

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Cork, Ireland, July.16.2018
    KOSOVO, Z66X WITH EMPHASIS ON FT8
    The Kosovo International Friendship Consortium, Z66X, will activate Kosovo once again beginning July 19 through July 30th with emphasis on FT8 Digital from 80m through 6m and utilizing the recently released DXpedition mode version 1.9.1, downloadable from https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx.html

    (Please read https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar...ition_Mode.pdf for details on split operation).

    The operators are Enda EI2II, Declan EI9HQ, Martti OH2BH, Hans PB2T, Driton Z61DX and Fehmi Z62FB.
    With the success of their first FT8 activations; OJ0BH, 7Q7EI, Z61AS and recently KH1/KH7Z, it is felt that FT8 DXpedition mode needs some further activation also in Europe. Recent authorization of 6M in Kosovo will also add to this desire.
    So as not to impede on the normal FT8 traffic we will operate on the following frequency’s
    Band FT8 DXpedition
    80 3567
    40 7056
    30 10131
    20 14090
    17 18095
    15 21091
    12 24911
    10 28091
    6 50323

    QSL Z66X via OH2BH via Clublog which will be on-line throughout the operation.
    We are delighted to announce that 'Kosovo - the World's newest DXCC entity' along with this Z66X operation will be presented at 'DX Féile' - the EI DX Convention, by Martti OH2BH (September 14/15). See www.dxfeile.ie for full information on this unique event.

          LAST MINUTE NEWS FROM KOSOVO

          MONDAY JUNE 27, 2022

          Z66X - 6M FOCUSED OPERATION IS ON TRACK

          Adrian, KO8SCA was sporadically active today as Z66X on HF SSB, while making the last touches on the antennas and the station.

          The 6M antenna is now ready and it is a 7 element Innov Antennas (LFA-2) with an 8.9m long boom provided by WiMo.

          Look for Z66X tomorrow (Tuesday) on regular HF bands only.

          Martti, OH2BH and Ville, OH2MM will arrive tomorrow, Tuesday, June 28, 2022 and will bring an Elecraft K3S radio and a SPE amplifier

          which will be used for the 6M operation starting Wednesday June 29, 2022.

          The team will be active on FT8 on 50.313MHz and 50.323MHz as much as possible but their pilot stations, K8MFO & OH1MA, will make

          QRG announcements on the ON4KST reflector.

          Z66X will also show up occasionally, if the propagation permits, on 6M CW & SSB.

          The operation will go QRT on Monday July 4, 2022.

          QSL via OH2BH.

            KOSOVO Z66X 6M DX-PEDITION RECAP

            Many have wondered about the delay on publishing the Z66X QSO statistics and log updates for the variety of databases such as ClubLog and LoTW.

            The truth is that Martti, OH2BH was diagnosed with COVID following the Z6 trip and he is still suffering of it. The other Z66X team members, Adrian, KO8SCA and Ville, OH2MM have shown no symptoms yet and they are assisting with the log process. In total some 3572 QSOs were made, out of which 44 QSOs on 6M FT8 were made with North America. Please QRX for a few more days for the log update.

            Meanwhile, Champ, E21EIC had the entire Siam DX Group present in the temple to talk to Buddha about Martti’s case. The message was loud and clear: “Buddha says that the DX-ers never die!”

            You can also delight Martti, OH2BH with your “get well” wishes by email.
