28MHz DX even with low Sun spots. South Shetlands active!

R1ANF   South Shetlands GC07mt   many decodes today
After VK0TH my most Southern WSPR entry.
Hoping for DP1POL or  KC4AAA Amundsen Scott  in grid JA00AA to show up again.

Total  29 spots > 8000km   
That means  my self declared DX index = 29   of 100 spots
(>4000km outside EU) 

 Topband  3 days in a row I heard and was heard by ZL3NW 
in CW  tonight also ZL3IX heard but too weak and short for 2-way.
and   VK2KRR  and VK6DZ in WSPR mode  not bad at all
But tonight it ended early Sun is still eruptive.

I heard that V53ARC was copied in Italy at 50MHz WSPR
There will be a day that even in VP8 one will start a WSPR beacon..

Slowly WSPR gets recognized by DX'rs   on 50MHz  too   that is not realy for us here in the 50MHz dead zone but  for TEP and DXpeditions  that have a set for 6m  it is interesting to run an intelligent beacon that can be monitored full time.

Good morning, I like to use WSPR to see how the bands are doing. Along with the reverse beacon network you can get a good idea how things are out there.
