60m ultimate DX New Zealand

Woow 60M for the first time heard and worked  the ultimate DX  New Zealand
since 29 January ZL HAM's have access to the 60m band.

Short path distance 18500km 
But i believe this morning was long path grey line unlike the map shows and calculates.
calculation shortpath to longpath :  40000-18500 =    21500km

USB DIAL 5.362MHz  not the usual 5357
Optimal time seems around 8Z in daylight  for New Zealand  / Pacific

ZL4AS ZL3NB ZL3CW ZL4OL   in FT8  and ZL3AB ZL4OL in JT9 that decodes to -25dB

 ZL3CW was  heard weak in cw  under callers
3D2AG was reported but not copied here
last year i saw 3D2AG and T2 was earlier in the morning  05 Z

1x spot by VK7BO  09:02Z 

                                            60m lacking in DXCC select

CQ 160 CW  To compensate for FT8 QSO  2 nights CW activity
           Sunday evening could not TX without TVI   1.8MHz interferes  ADSL+  TV  signal  here
          I thought to have it fixed...
