Late evening yesterday and today I have returned to WSPR with 2W to the V2000 vertical on 50.293MHz WSPR. G4IKZ 18km west of me is monitoring with a Moxon antenna and despite polarisation differences gets a strong signal from me. G8EPA (61km) is about -22dB S/N with me. No other stations copied so far. Stations in Holland and Germany are too far for tropo and I have not seen any evidence (yet anyway) of wintertime Es on 6m. I keep hoping to copy some GDX from further afield.
UPDATE WED EVENING: Having been on 6m ALL DAY LONG and only heard G8EPA (61km) I have QSYed back to 10m WSPR and intend to be on with 2W overnight and all tomorrow.
