One of those rare nights with longpath to VK at 28MHz



Woow  when I entered the shack at 23:30 CET almost midnight  found 28Mhz still wide open
VK2ZMT VK4CZ over no doubt longpath!
Why must this be longpath? With a dipole the back and front is equal receiving but the regular morning  North-East path is the dark side of the earth or better said the no-go area for 28 and 50 MHz
As we know all too well in North Europe that  we are not hearing any of the 6m DX that can be heard  in the south of Europe for months now.
And if the dx path would go over the North-East we would be the first to hear it .
We have to wait for Es layer to extend the south EU propagation to us.
And then when we finally catch one of those rare ES extend TEP openings we are at the mercy of the south Europeans to get a break in the pile or the DX must have ears for the weaker dx behind the wall.



That means all distances have to be corrected  for us in the north the path goes over south Europe
and not the other way around
So 16452  plus  2000-3000  19000 km roughly

and for the EA CT stations  minus 2000-3000km    not plus as it is always wrongly assumed the  SW EU  path is going over the night side of the globe!

Ja Jaap prachtig en best wel zeldzaam. Het is mij gelukt met 1W. Afstand 23810km long path naar VK4CZ. Heb hem ook ontvangen, dus je kan wel zeggen een WSPR QSO. Heb de HB9CV al de hele dag richting west staan, dus kan ook niet anders. 73, Bas

fb Bas ja met de beam weet je het helemaal zeker.
WSPR is we geen contest maar waarom moeten die EA en CT nu altijd voorgetrokken worden. Ze hebben al 10x betere propagatie over zuid maar voor de afstand bepaling loopt het wel over ons heen dat dan weer wel....

Hello Jaap: I'm using a dual dipole with the same coax for bands 40 and 15, 9 meters high, with that I receive your signal at 10 meters. The transceiver is a TS480SAT.
