3D2AG FIJI XE1H 60m good propagation

Early morning  5.35700 MHz  JT65 long path 3D2AG  heard CQ!
3D2AG Fiji flag Fiji
Antoine is very active at 60m and consequent present for EU at gray line peak local  07- 08h
A few mornings no copy here, but this morning propagation was real good for a change
and  decoded -18 3D2GA CQ several times.
Yesterday 1 decode for a start , my antenna the inverted V dipole  top @ 20m  was not as good as thought.
Tuesday we had  26C   "tropical" day and night  possible the last real warm day this year
now 7 am  the  expected rain arrived  no t-storms  and we need water
 but not as much as Texas has please..
JT65 is the best mode the signal of 3D2AG would be too weak in FT8 i think

also JT65 QSO with XE1H  copied  for first time


Like WSPR -map , https://pskreporter.info/pskmap.html shows path and calculates DX over daylight zone. According to realtime DX maps I never have long path propagation
 I have seen 10m long path drawn over the night side of the globe  and  160m dx over the day side
consequently PA0  never has long path DX  
last  night already showed very good propagation at 80m i was hoping to catch 3D2AG this morning .  A very short night  for me with BBQ until 02  but  was more then worth it  
Best propagation seen since long long time.

yesterday again VK8AM at 28.125 MHz  decoded with my antenna  a 4m a.g.

Dat is een mooie Jaap. Ja wat is vroeg, rond die tijd zit ik al op m'n werk....mooie DX is altijd als ik er niet ben. En je weet het.....als je er niet bent werk je het ook niet....
Toch mooi die 60m band!

hoi Bas,
Ja klopt als je werkt en een gezin hebt dat is dat een moeilijke tijd om aan radio te doen behalve Radio Noord..
Nu ik eenmaal een QSO heb hoor ik hem veel beter hihi
vanmorgen weer gezien 3D2AG CQ en N6RW
