I'm not so sure about the title but it was interesting and fun none the
less to chase 7P8LB on top Band. I made attempts all three evenings but
failed to garnish a contact. Each night I could hear them up two hours
before their sunrise. Then, near the magical time 03:45 -04:15 UTC they
would rise above the noise Q5 copy.
I recorded night number two and almost all of the opening on their last
morning event. Kudos to K7ZV, N6VR, AA7A, W5ZN, N4RJ and KY7M who made
it into Rune's log.
I have no idea what they were using for antennas but the signal was very
predictable and consistent.
Eastern Africa is a difficult but not impossible path from the left
coast. Perhaps with a little influence we convince someone to go to
zones 21, 23 and 39 to make a serious low band effort. The late Winter
and Spring Equinox time periods would be perfect for a WAZ wrap up!
All of this made up of the giant Pacific void we have.
