MNI TNX to Frank for activating SV5 on 6m EME and giving me DXCC #188 (#134 on 6m
EME)! I didn't realize that they would have elevation on 6m and be QRV at times
other than moonset and moonrise - what a pleasant surprise! That certainly is an
advantage of having internet access! Of course, their JT65A signal is much stronger
when they aim on the horizon and get ground gain, but they were still -24 dB and easy
copy here while aiming up at the moon last night.
The fact that they quickly worked a number of 6m stations with elevation when they
got on 6m should demonstrate to others the amount of growing interest and number of
capable stations now on 6m EME. We encourage more 2m EME DXpeditions to include 6m
when they travel to rare DXCC!
Best wishes to everybody interested for success in contacting them. They will be QRV
two more days! GL and VY 73, Lance
