nice to see that Top band is really alive these days > between 21-2300UTC I copied lot of JA's also VR2MY and 9K2MU. Also 7X0RY was active. Then band opened to W/VE.
Unfortunatelly I am building an antenna system currently so I am not able to work. Just only listening with temporary antennas.
I am planning to make receiving loop antennas and flag or pennant and for TX to try make any loaded L or similar system cause have really limited space for that.

Best regards and CU on TOP sn,

Petr OK1RP
