Last night we had great 40M polar path DX to Europe. This is a big deal for the West Coast – having lived on the East Coast I can tell you the difference – we took EU DX for granted when I was WA2QHN. In fact, I wasn’t a DXer, but EU was easier to work than Hawaii – I remember KH6 was a treat in NJ – where here at KY6R its like a local.
FT5ZM had the peak of Cycle 24, and its funny – they (3Y0Z) are getting the last gasp uptick before the sun sets on this cycle.
Conditions for Bouvet should be “good enough” between now and then.
As long as we don’t end up in a terrible war.
