24 July 144MHz world record

24 July  a special ES day

A new world record was set:  144 MHz   D41CV  with DK5AI  4964km !!!
 the magic WW square JO50 where all DX signals seem to land

 144.174 FT8
EA8DBM was worked more south in PA   his signal stopped at JO22 JO32


absolute spectaculair DX
TF3HP  reported   EA8DBM    144174 MHz!!!!!!

This year 144 ES  in my QTH was  disappointing sofar
I had my home build 200W PA ready but hardly used.
DX spots seen on the cluster never landed here it was mostly south as usual
Just 1   144.300 ES  QSO  with IS0OZK    FT8 only EA1 SV1 heard
144.300 SV8PEX in QSO  max s4 German speaking relaxed talking then faded

My 144 best  tropo was  EA1MX  this time in FT8

1296MHz there we had good propagation but during working day's
best DX  1227km with Guy in USB and CW very close to EA border
20190629 09131296129.3 CW   PA0O         599  F2CT            559 Guy     in93gj   

In the same square heard  Spanisch beacon EA2TZ 1296.855 1280km heard weak 2 mornings

EA8  was deze keer de ODX    niet de volledige tijd meegedaan not full time NL: PA5WT  PA2REH  PA4EL heard
had to miss the Sunday evening  ES to EA  I7/8 IS0(1) IT9  9H(1) ZB2(1) CT(3) EA8(2) CN8(1) SV OY LZ TA(2) 4X(2) Some FT8 contest activity  but the  CQWW VHF site does not mention the use of FT8 contest mode? And had a problem with FT8 contest mode the program crashed when logging i upgraded to the latest WSJT-x  V2.1.0 but same crash 
sorry PA2REH trying to log you failed
I used only CW / USB mode then.
this run-time error popup came when pressing the log button, never had this before after upgrading from V2.01 to the latest V2.1.0  i lost the CAT connection
the radio type  was set to the first entry of the list : A…
