Yet again, I am on 2m FT8 with 2.5W to the big-wheel omni antenna. Already I have been spotted by 7 stations with the furthermost being G7RAU (461km) on the Lizard in Cornwall. It is now 1010z. On RX just 3 stations spotted in 2 countries and no QSOs yet.Looking at the grabber at G0LRD there looks like a weak Doppler shift on my signal in addition to the strong direct signal. I guess this could be local aircraft. See http://126.96.36.199:8080/cap/ .
UPDATE 1140z: So far this morning I have been spotted by 14 stations on 2m FT8 TX. On RX I have spotted 13 stations in 6 countries with the furthermost being EA1MX (1035km) on the north coast of Spain.
UPDATE 1600z: I have been spotted by 25 stations in 5 countries so far today on 2m FT8 QRP. On RX 36 stations in 8 countries spotted. 2 QSOs so far. 2 stations spotted were in northern Spain.
