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 ...
