Thanks for your feedback, everyone. A couple of comments: -
As a novice activator I find I’m so busy handling the CW QSOs (especially on 40m), writing the log, stopping stuff being blown away in the wind, keeping my fingers warm, etc. so wouldn’t have be able to monitor the SOTA website and respond in real-time to a QSY request.
Before operating on 60m I read the entire ‘CW on 60m’ topic on this reflector and concluded that a) inter-EU CW working is currently a mess due to differing country allocations and b) experienced UK ops (e.g. G4ISJ) got lots of QSOs in the UK CW allocation, hence my choice. However, I would be happy to try inter-EU working on my next activation. 5.3550 and 5.3815 were two frequencies mentioned in the above thread which many countries have that I might try.
