We had a short (30 minute) opening to China. Quite a few South African stations made several QSOs into China.
I managed to make only one QSO and that was with Li BA8AT on CW
So what is the big deal?
It appears as if this is a first. According to the info at my disposal there has never been any prior QSOs between South Africa and China on 6m.
Now I understand why it is called the “magic band”
