Currently I’m in the Czech Republic for family reasons and until today the radio has been silent but was lucky today and managed to get Sharon 9CO675 near Halifax NS. She was running an Antron99 and myself Lincoln II standard Mike, standard power and the SR-A10
Location nice at around 300m / 900ft above sea level. Checked super-bowl and was silent, checked 385L and silent so was great to get Sharon before conditions swung west towards UK and Central EU was lost. But 11th August not bad for first contact to North America.
Sure everyone has better contacts but this was a nice one for me, hearing NA so early in year a surprise this far inland. Plus S0 receive on the Lincoln II (never seen it so low) helped. Let’s hope next time I’ve the video ready and running.
