P5/3Z9DX Ham radio activation of North Korea

23.12.2015 20:29 Alter: 2 yrs

The ARRL reports the first amateur radio operation from Pyongyang, N.Korea in 13 years took place on December 20. In an unexpected turn of events, Polish DXer Dom, 3Z9DX, who has been visiting North Korea this week in advance of a planned Amateur Radio operation early next year, came on the air from the most-wanted DXCC entity around 0000 on December 20. P5/3Z9DX has been active on both 20 meters and 15 meters SSB only, and a few hundred stations have been fortunate enough to work him.Propagation was unfavorable due to a geomagnetic storm that seems to have affected his efforts on 20 meters. He also reported that he faced extremely high ambient noise levels in Pyongyang. He ran 100 W to a vertical antenna mounted on a metal fencepost some 7 feet above the ground among government high-rise buildings.
