Another historic contact this afternoon when Pierre ZS8M on Marion island

made contact with John ZD9GI on Gough Island (both remotely located islands

in the South Atlantic ) at 1552 on AO-51. At most they had about 10-20
degrees elevation

and both were operating portable.


Today Pierre logged ZS1LS, ZS2BK, ZS3SVD, ZR5JT, 5R8KH, ZS1UR , ZS6AC, ZD9GI
and V51PJ

John logged ZS1LS, ZS8M, V51PJ, ZS1UR, ZS3SCD, V51PJ and ZR5JT.


If you want these rare DXCC entities confirmed via Satellite, this is you
best opportunity.

Both Pierre and John will be active on the afternoon  passes for the next
few days.


73 Allan.
