And if you look at SW3 except @K2JB Jim all NA spots are on 20m and down :sleepy:

Worked 3DA0RU on 12m first call with 100w and my Windom antenna !!
I know it’s in AF but days before worked NA on 17m !!

Please try 5 minutes and if no propa work your own internal NA frequencies, but try one time we are all listening :wink:

Eric,
Yes I am home chasing SOTA EA2GM and LB8CG on 20M. Here in NA 17M is noisy with weaker signals. I wish I was on a summit today!

I must have a listen for J5T tomorrow. :slight_smile: My vertical was very noisy today so I will string a dipole up.

For some of us in the northern echelon of Europe (Its grim up north) when EU has gone for their dinners and we can’t hear USA/VE too well and it’s dark on the eastern side of the EU 27 we look to the EA and CT areas in Iberia. Tonight was a good example. As I was cooking the dinner (stir fry with chicken and rice) I nipped into the adjacent shack and snapped up these two beauties:
