Ireland on 160m

I was able to work EI4DQ with JT65A on 160 m tonight. Distance: 879 km. Condition were okay tonight for the lower bands. Tomorrow I do have a sked with PE4BAS at 21:30 local time. You'll never know. Maybe with live to close to each other. I mean, a station from Ireland was working a German station. The German station got a -5 dB signal report, but I couldn't hear him.

They hear me

Yesterday I was wondering if they could hear me on 160 m with JT65A, well thanks to Hamspots.net they did. Why not a QSO? I don't know. One station called me last night (SP4) but when I replied he was gone. Well, I will keep on trying.

WSPR 160m

Though conditions were fair on the lower frequencies, I did hear a lot of stations with JT65 on 160 meter. But I couldn't work any of them. I also was not spotted at hamspots.net So I tried WSPR. My best distance was 990 km into Ireland with 5W and my HyEndFed.
