Back on 6m
After most of the day on 10m (lots of Es around Europe) it has been back on 6m since about 1708z. So far only G4IKZ (18km) spotting me.
|6m early evening WSPR spots 1W ERP|
Last night there were some new 6m GDX WSPR spots including G3ZJO (79km) so I am hopeful of some more GDX and maybe Es this evening on 6m. Eddie G3ZJO is more often seen on 472kHz running 1mW ERP. I have not tried 472kHz for some months now because of my health issues (stroke). Sticking to the higher HF bands and VHF (6m and 2m) have been easier. I need a better antenna for MF.
UPDATE 1950z: Been on 6m for over an hour and a half and not even the briefest hint of a signal seen yet. Just the spots from G4IKZ proving the kit is on and working. Very disappointing so far this evening. No Es or GDX at all.
UPDATE 2000z: Decided to go back to 10m even though 20-30MHz propagation is now forecast to be “poor”.
