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”.
