recently on July 31, 2002 with 5x9 copy. Gern's 6 meter dipole may
work for M/S if there's enough watts behind it and JT44 on Es would
probably be no problem if there is an opening. Most weak signal
stations on 2 meters will be horizontally polarized and the -20dB
loss from cross polarization would probably limit Gern to working
stations with vertical antennas. Gern, why not turn that 3 element
horizontal and retune it? SSB and weak signal digital are more fun
than FM and packet anyways, Hi! I'd be glad to try to work 6 meters,
it's only ~750 miles so we might be able to do it. There are other
stations active on WSJT modes in OR,WA,ID,WY,MT and BC, some stations
there might be able to work 2 meters as well. GL
