28MHz a real good day

It cycles up and down  the 28MHz props
last week(s)  very poor.
Complete absent propagation inlastOceania 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 W6I would not have known this butWSPR   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  separated80m vertical a bit…
