Title: GNK 13564 1845 UTC 7 Oct 2018
Post by: ChrisSmolinski on October 07, 2018, 1846 UTC
I noticed foF2 was almost 9 MHz !!! So I decided to check 22m, and found GNK with a very nice signal.

some of are totally-convinced that this GNK guy is vastly QRO over pt. 15 rules and the field-strength! sri

Interesting, but they can't all be over power. GNK comes in fairly regularly - as it did for a while on the 4th Nov. But also signals from CT and NC, with similar or greater strength!

I could only wish for such reach for PVC!

GNK at an unexpected time early this morning, 1054 UTC 8 Jan 2019. I was able to do a few antenna comparisons, and found it came in almost as well on the small 50 ft LoG (Loop on Ground) antenna as the 20m dipole.

Hearing GNK at 1406 8 Feb 2019 with a weak signal. foF2 is 9 MHz which is rather high for this time of the solar cycle and winter. Could be a good day for 22m.  The 11m band is fairly busy already.
