Propagation along same longitude

Why don’t organize a transequatorial propagation day?!?

Because you can’t predict when it will occur!?

Sorry, I discovered that the tep require only one skip. That’s not what I meant to say. I mean propagation along same longitude.

I changed the name of topic.
I apologize for the mistake.

… with the higher bands being open almost daily (even further north) it sounds like fun.
The question is will there be enough people in Southern Africa who are interested in such an event and maybe even schedule an activation?

A good idea, Roman. When the 60m was approved in Germany, South Africa was one of my first connections.

Hmm, checking the data base shows some activity in ZS-land. Some people are also active here on the reflector. Almost no activity in V5, though.
Not sure if that is sufficient to arrange an event, but if activators/chasers from ZS are interested, we could take a closer look at the propagation charts. 15/12/10 metres should work around utc noon. By coincidence I have VDAs for all three bands :nerd_face:

I monitored pskreporter, in the morning 15 meter is a best way. In the afternoon 12 and 10 improve. in my next activations I will spend a bit of time on this bands

Thanks Roman for VDA link, I will try to realize it.
In the last afternoon the 17 meters give a chance.
I assume there would be few chasers, should hope in a stations calling.
