I thought that I'd start a new topic for the magic band as it's starting to slowly pick up.

I only have a halo on the band and will have to do something about that at some point. 

With the chance of meteor enhanced Es about during the current Geminids meteor shower I had a listen on FT8.

So far today I have worked IV3BLQ at 1330 Km

It's 50.313 Alan, not been near the radio for a few hours, but it is the season where Winter Es  can happen Smile


Will give it a blast now for a short while.

Last one of the day IK3BNO 1260Km (FT8). Almost certainly all contacts today were meteor assisted Es as we are in the middle of the Quadrantids shower.

28MHz was starting to show signals from Scandinavia which is fairly unusual so I took a look at 50MHZ and managed to work SM3GSK and LA5LJA on FT8

This Thursday (and every second Thursday of the month) there is a 6 metre activity contest from 20:00 to 22:30. Not everyone likes contests, but it's hardly likely to be wall to wall on 50MHz. 

Chance of some good tropo too, although that may be better on Friday.
