Just having fun on 2 meters lately. After putting up a simple cross dipole for 2 meters, and removed my 6 meter vertical, I made some nice DX with 4 watts QRP using FT8. For a couple a years I wasn’t active on 2 meters. But now it is like old days.
As always my stations is low profile. No big antennas, just a simple wire or omnidirectional antennas. That’s just the fun for me. Today I worked SF6F Sweden. He was +0 dB and I got -18 dB. Distance 688 km. He made my day! Those tropo conditions come and go. After 15 minutes all signals were gone.
