Over the years, there have been plenty of attempts to bridge the Atlantic on 144MHz, via tropo or meteor scatter. Up to now, it hasn’t been done. There’s no doubt at all in my mind that it’s possible – it’s just a question of try, try and try again.
A North America group, operating as VC1T plan to try from July 5th to 12th this year. They plan to use good power to a 43 element yagi (yes, 43 elements) and concentrate on FSK441 and JT65b modes.

Will this be the year it’s done? Wouldn’t it be great if the answer was yes!
