Missed it..

For anyone checking in to see what I caught in the Es yesterday.....I missed it. Not as upset as if I had missed ZB who came on later...

There was a brief tropo opening to EA8 later and EB8AHT was worked 55 both ways (IL18sl) 2600km at 18:06.

hello tim

You are on the open door towarts the atlantic.
Regular i look on your blog what new things you have been working.
oeps ea8 .
What our activies concerns. In the may contest all the bands worked finally 24 hours and I think we made it nr 1 this contest in the competition.

Especially on 24 GHz we made a good score with 7 qso with a maximum of 280 km (qso with PI4Z in JO11). Condition were special. Cold wind from the NW, high winds and rain.
Total 1007 km.
The set-up is now on 10 meter high in the free open countryside. We run 8 w!!twt in a 40 cm dish. Rx is about 3,2 db noise.

PS; dit you work the ZB ?? or not ??
