FYI to all, concerning the CQWW VHF tomorrow.  Today (Friday) at noon, there was widespread tropo on 2M east of the continental divide and SE into W4/W5 land.  Unless there is a drastic shift in WX patterns out there, it will most likely appear tomorrow as well.

Keep an ear open for it.

Jonesy,

I hope to have twin 12 element 2 meter beams up at 60 feet for the
contest and will look for you from Gallup, NM DM55pm. I must say a
road map with your route would be a bit easier for me but perhaps you
will be far enough away that it won't make too big difference.
Like I mentioned in my Rover Plans web page, point at 38° N, 104° W.
Or, from your location, point at La Junta, Colo.

I don't have high expectations that it'll work for us. But, I have
made many, similar, "surprising" contacts over the years.

Good luck in the Contest
Good luck to you, too, Mike!

I had reserved a room back in the spring and then things changed and I let it go.  Now, the wife is heading back east over that weekend and I could again go.  But, the cheap rooms are gone, it's a 12 hour drive, it's way to $$ to fly from Podunk field CO to Podunk field KS - hmmm, what other excuses are there ?

Maybe next year again - I've made the last 3-4 in a row.

Hi Mike,

Looks like we have a new DX completion for NMVHFS.  By my navigation N5JEH Ed DM65rd completed an SSB contact with K0TPP in EM48rk, a distance of 913 miles. Bob N5EPA DM64vx also completed that contact with K0TPP, a distance of 900 miles for second place.  Would you update the DX results page to show these accomplishments on 6/19/2018 pse. I used Find your QTH to calculate the distances.  Pretty cool.

Good 6-meter opening again today with some double hop.

Also, a bit of 2 meter E-skip today. Ed, N5JEH and I both worked EM48 (K0TPP) near St Louis. Ed worked 2 meter "DX" in EM25 (K5SW) too. SSB

Re: 6M DX report Sunday 6/4

Arne N7KA
 

Yes.  I did work EA8YV as reported.  I had been watching a newscast by Tamitha Skov earlier that morning in which she reported that the good propagation we had been experiencing was from a sun spot that had rotated from view to earth and that conditions  were quickly declining and would be quiet for about 1 week, pending another sun spot on the back side of the sun that would rotate into view. 


I was tuning to see how poor conditions were and heard the weak CW CQ from EA8YV.  While answering his CQ (I was running 100W from the TS-590SG), I hit the amp ON switch and the 3 minute timer started ticking.  So the QSO on my end was 100W until the final 73 when the amp finally was ready.


The point is it pays to listen carefully.  Plus a bit of luck;  Ya had to be at the right place at the right time.

N7KA worked EA8YV the old fashioned way on cw.  DX database updated with a new top distance for cw at 5129 miles.  I let FT8 run unattended for most of Sunday afternoon and decoded an OH1, but that's it.   I suspect there are some NM ops on this mailing list (AI5I, N5JEH, ??) who have eclipsed 6000 miles using FT8 on 6m.  Would like to add these extreme DX QSOs to the online record, so please let me know.  W5UHF logged an 1100+ mile MSK144 QSO on 144 MHz during the June contest, but I don't have enough details to add to database.  W7QQ should get me that info at some point, as well as all the new UHF and microwave records.

I knew there must have been a reason I hadn't submitted it before.

Jim, that is great DX but the database is only for QSOs made after 1 Nov 2017.  I think if we included legacy QSOs, N5JEH and N7KA would have most of the records!  Mike

Mike,

I just checked my 6M CW QSO with ON4IQ (JO20ar) from last year. My logging program says 5,258 miles. You might want to confirm the distance. I'm in DM64nb. Contact was 13 June 2017 at 17:58. My end was 100 wts to 3 elements. Johan did the heavy lifting with his H-frame of four M2 8 els. (His QRZ page says he's upgraded to 9 elements now)
