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 QRZ.com. 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??
