To my surprise the Butternut HF5B seems to be doing an excellent job on 10m!! Okay okay, the 400W from the Acom 1011 helps as well, but still, I get excellent signal reports and don’t have to wait too long in the pile ups. This evening I worked:
Marcos XE1B (Mexico, 9300 km) on 28.472 MHz
Rick, KM7R (USA 7800 km) from Teton Valley, 1000 miles above see level as if he was a local!
Osmany CO2OQ from Cuba (7900 km) op 10m:
And last but not least Daniel YY4DNN (Venezuela 8000 km) and PJ4NX (Bonaire 7800 km). Nice score for today on 10m, all firsts I think. It’s dark outside now, band is closed. It’s been a nice afternoon / evening!
Thanks everybody, it’s been great fun!
