Best VHF DX lists


#1

To avoid hi-jacking Adrian’s thread regarding distances achieved on 2m FM, could anyone wishing to respond to the question of lists please do so here.

Thanks in anticipation.

Original post:

I was just thinking about this Adrian and wondered whether there was any interest in having a list similar to that for the number of QSOs during an activation. Then I thought about the random factors that might affect the list, such as Tropo conditions, Sporadic E, etc. Such a list would be subject to an activator being in the right place at the right time. Thinking on, I wondered whether there would be any merit in listing long distance S2S contacts or contacts at say 70cms and above where the random factors are reduced.

What do others think?

73, Gerald
