Re: 2018 CQ WW VHF results


Yup, a few thousand feet of granite betwixt does not help. Yet, I think that timing could make it work (as you referenced). Aiming SSW and NNE simultaneously with a bit of pre-planning, perhaps.

Ah, shucks, fellas!

I only wish I would have an easier time of it working you NM Ops on 6M,
2M -- even 432mcs. But, that Raton divide, the mountains N.E. of Santa
Fe, and even the Sandias make it rough for the propagation into the S.E.
Colorado 4-corner "confluence" of DM87, DM88, DM77, and DM78.

But, it does happen from time-to-time.

And I get goosebumps each time it happens. :-)
