I am not that involved with the N0UK JT65 EME chat, but it for some reason my desire to highlight some of the goodies going on there can make me the third party of a QSO...
Check this out, it's a beautiful logger talk through QSO-session between HB9Q, DF2ZC and HL4GHT. Bernd and Dan are carrying on as usual, chatting away so they won't loose the grip of this rare DX station ..

- SM2CEW? Did you take all notes Peter or do you want me to send you a transcript? ;-) (DF2ZC Bernd)
There it is...!! The third party traffic.. and I was not even there at the time..
Bernd could sense that this would end up on my blog, I just wonder why...?
Could it be because he knew that the contact would never have taken place without explicit instructions to HL4GHT what to send, and when..?
Of course that's the reason. And I am being treated as the third party, the book keeper in SM2.. love it..
As Philippe said to Bernd after his "QSO":
- well done bernd!! (F1DUZ)
By the way, this past weekend I took part in the Dubus 432 MHz CW EME contest.
It was pure fun, all random, and all contacts were made via the radio!
- Needless to say, CW is King!
