First of all, I can compute the GCB myself. I  didn't want what the computer thinks, I want what others have  experienced on the air.
  Second, RA4LW's lat/long is incorrect on This is not unusual.  Usint the lat/long Jim found would put Vlad in China. His actual is  54.2 N, 49.6 E for a GCB of 6° short and about 200° long path.
  Third, this was my morning 1500z. Long path on 40 is around 225° as is anything I hear from EU on 80/75 at 1500z.
  RA4LW, OH3XR, and UN5J were all best between my 30° Beverage and my  320° Beverage, except for a few minutes just before sunrise when the  path shifted briefly to the SW.
  So again what is the "normal" path for west coast USA to Europe "long path" on topband??
