June summer contest 50MHz UKSMG

l2 hours 6m all modes

FT8 heard VP2EIH VE1PZ  PZ5RA PV8DX YV5LI HH2JR HH70A (WSJT-x refused to pick up that callsign with d-click) and HI  KP4   but only  CO8LY was 2-way on  alternative 50.323
one way propagation for all other DX
They where working Italians but Mediterranean ham's can work  late night into the Caribbean
   while here the band is closing short after sunset.

Weekend lot of contest activity   unlike HF easy  PG7V  contest calendar
for  VHF UHF contest date's there is no easy complete calendar site? 

 Microwave contest  Saturday June 2 1200u  Sunday 1200u
     managed 8 QSO   1296 MHz   after  an easy random  QSO with OK2
      activity dropped and  no more sked's requests at KST2ME
I like 23cm. My station is good RX  and TX >30W direct  at the 1m2 dish feedpoint
But too much noise for me.
Same time 6m was buzzing so i decided for contest at 6m

WA7BNM  did not mention the AE…
