There was a comment here about continuous CQing with little rate. This
brings up a question:
In the last hour of the CQWWSSB I (central Kansas) was pointed at JA (317
degrees from here) on 10 Meters and calling CQ with a weak JA coming back
about every three minutes when in a ten minute period got calls from Iceland
and Ghana well off the side of the beam and the path in total darkness. It
was maybe half an hour past sunset here. I really wonder about the path!
My feeling is that it never hurts to put some RF in the air.
My meager S&P effort, missed Sunday morning path to Eu:
440 QSOs 32 zones 111 countries. 132 JAs. Single OP HP 10M only.
