Surprise activity from North Korea

| December 23, 2015

The world’s most-wanted entity, North Korea, was briefly on the air on 20 December.

Polish DXer Dom Gryzb, 3Z9DX worked several hundred stations as P5/3Z9DX on 20, 15 and 10m.

He reported very high noise levels in Pyongyang, from where he ran 100W to a vertical just above ground level.

The site was amid many government high-rise buildings.

Many officials visited the station whilst it was on the air, keeping a close watch on the amateur radio operation.

Dom was in the country as part of preparations for a proper DXpedition to P5, planned for February 2016.
