There were more miracles yesterday 20 Jan 2018:
On W0C/SP-123 at 2813m in the National Forest, on 20M CW:
ZL1BYZ John 1909Z
EA2LU Jorge 1910Z
On W0C/FR-165 at 2883M farther north in the National Forest, on 20M CW:
ZL1BYZ John 2156Z
JH1MXV Hatori 2158Z
Solar Flux was 70, near minimum level. The K index was 2 and 1 during the periods.
Band conditions were very nice on 40-30-20-17M, with low noise and long propagation.
I was running 10W to a 20M end-fed inverted-L wire, high-Z, on W0C/SP-123.
On W0C/FR-165 I ran 10W to a 16M end-fed inverted-L wire with 4M counterpoise, moderate Z.
While the antennas were only a few meters high, suspended from a pole at about 6M and sloping down to about 2M, they were both set up on sharp ridges running north-south.
