|Stations spotting my 2.5W 2m FT8 in first 20 minutes|
Since about 0850z, I have been on 2m FT8. Already spotted by a 5 stations of which one gave me an incredible +4dB S/N. This was G8TIC (170km). I suspect this was aircraft reflection. Best DX spot was by DF0MU (475km). The photo shows the stations spotting me in the first 20 minutes.

on 2m FT8 today so far to 1440z
UPDATE 1440z: 23 stations in 4 countries have spotted me so far today and I have spotted 19 stations and I have had 1 QSO. Who needs high power, towers and big beams? Certainly not me! Just an FT817ND and a simple big-wheel seem enough.
