In reply to DH8DX:
Its amazing. After working a lot of known sota-chasers, there was
a JA station calling me -> JG3LGD and lots of UA and UR stations.
I managed to work JH4PQQ in August from Kuopio on 20 m band at 80 m ASL using 2.5 W. The antenna was 35 m x 2 - 4 m loop 8 m up. That was strange since it sounded like the others on the frequency did not hear the same JA station and thus let me work there alone. I had also QSO with the one watt George GM3OXX an other day, see http://www.g3ycc.karoo.net/oxo.htm . Last Sunday the sigs from Roy G4SSH were weak on 30 m. I wonder what is the reason for that. Should probably run the VOCAP to check the propagation for the season.
