Last night was unusual in that not only were the signals from Europe arriving here via skew path, I was also able to work a couple.
Around 0530 I noted that all the European signals that were being spotted were best on my 90° Beverage and they were fairly strong. Normally when skew path is in play, I cannot work anything at all. This time I noticed that I could hear most of the euro's quite well on my inverted V. Normally all I hear on the V is the local power lines!
Just for fun I called and worked OM2XW and SP3BQ using the inverted V. That was the first time I've worked anything but VK's with that antenna!
