Hello John and all other Topbanders,
Yes on Sunday night, no question that VK0IR was strongest on my NE bev.
Actually the first time I could really say I copied there signal. Peaked
569 here in NC PA at approx. 22:50Z. Obviously W1 and W2 had superior
signals on HI till closer to their sunrise when we had our shot.
Just unbelievable signal and what a thrill to get such a rare one in the
73 to all Bob K3UL ex WA3EUL
