On three of my five last activations, I’ve been delighted to work Andre ON4CAP on 2m ssb. I’ve always wondered why there aren’t more continental QSOs in the log (excepting anomalous propagation, that is).
Maybe the answer is that I just don’t spend enough time beaming in that direction. Is it conicidence that the majority of microwave operators seem to be towards the SE and so the beam is now spending longer pointing towards the SE and the continent?
I know it’s very easy to point towards the traditional centres of activity in the quest to qualify a hill. Maybe I need to spend more time with the beam generally in that direction.
