Re: Band Fairly Open

Geary McDowell
 

Yuuup, you saw me this morning Jim.  Wish I had gotten a little earlier start.  I worked Belgium and Italy, I saw some others but I forget other than Germany I never got a return from.  I worked five east coast stations and one AZ.  I saw Jerry, N9AVY, gave him a call and instead of the band just shifting a little, I totally lost it.  So I've been playing FT8 since, with only 26 so far, kind of slow, most I see I've had a contact with this month already.  HI HI

There were some on 20 as well.  I made eight QSOs on 20M PSK, two DX before I lost the band again.

Also good here in Central Florida.  Just logged my 5000th PSK31 QSO.  I know that is not many compared to some of our members, but for me it was a milestone!  Also picked up a new ID and a new WY grid this morning.  It's a good day!

Re: 20M

No doubt 20m band was open today.....I was able to work some 20m PSK to a few EU ops but until the FT8 activity comes back to other modes that is where just in a few minutes most the activity is at showing the band in great shape.


Re: 20M

Martin Tuip
 

I just rarely see the EU. It's both an antenna an geography issue. If there is a guy running qrp in the south pacific I can easily talk to them. Just look at my qrz page for my 'challenge'.

Don't let a dead bad fool you.  This morning I worked Senegal on 20m (6W7/ON4ACT) when there was only maybe 2 signal across the waterfall. I saw a weaker signal which I clicked on and saw the 6W calling CQ.  He answered me and that was that and at the end he faded completely out.  I always say the band is usually open to somewhere ... although it may be a grid square middle of open ocean !

I saw two or three in the last half hour on 20m, only one decoded well enough to read.  The waterfall was changing colors like the band was iffy here in SW OK.
