First 6 meter contact this season

I did hear some signals on 6 meter. But signals disappear quickly into the noise. I did hear UX5NW from the Ukraine, but when I came back for him the QSB kills the QSO. Just made a CW QSO with ER5AL from Moldova. But with exchange of locators I lost him. Nevertheless it was my first Es QSO on 6 meter this season.

    Starting the 5/22 until the 5/25/2014, I will be active from Isla Testigo Grande, the main and largest island of the Archipelago Los Testigos. This grup of islands are located in the southeastern Caribbean Sea, at about 50 miles northeast of Isla Margarita. They are a part of the Dependencias Federales of Venezuela.
