Tropo on 2 meter

The weather is fine. Up to 24 C today and sunny. A good chance for tropo on VHF. So I was listening on 2 meters with FT8 and I heard DG7KAQ he was very loud with +8 dB. I called him and we made a qso. My report was -9 dB with my very simple cross dipole and 5 watts (FT817) just 240 km distance.

  1. Het ES seizoen komt er weer aan. Wil morgen eigenlijk de 6m antenne weer plaatsen. 73, Bas

    1. Hallo Bas, 6 meter blijft een leuke band, van de winter zelfs af en toe openingen. Nu weer helemaal van de zomer. 73 Paul
