28MHz a real good day
It cycles up and down the 28MHz props
last week(s) very poor.
Complete absent propagation in last Oceania CW weekend.
But some USA decodes showed up these last days. Always a good sign for 28MHz.
Today we got the maximum DX possible PA<-> ZL
Only thing that could make it an even better day is longpath to VK later tonight.
I have learned that EA CT I not only have better and longer propagation but also the DX is better >19000 km ZL<> CT
EA8 to W6 is a greater distance then from here to W6 I would not have known this but WSPR showed this.
We can never beat south EU in dx-ing on the high bands that's a fact.
Pacific , VP8 , Caribbean area is complete absent in WSPR Possible no one there is interested in DX or propagation?
There is probably even more WSPR activity on Antarctica.
Tonight separated 80m vertical a bit more about 1m from the mast now awaiting the result tuning was the same bit strange?
Must be less topp load now I would think.
Maybe the old construction was not as bad as I thought with a 2meter side arm
Still 80M in EU zero DX reports this sunset!
It looks a straight radio blackout.
but I can compare my "local" signal strength with DK4XI who is +13dB here while I am +10-12 there +13db is about full scale in WSPR. DK4XI must be using some abandoned SW broadcast antenna ...
