6M Band opening this afternoon
« on: May 02, 2024, 0031 UTC »
Turned on 6M this afternoon and first worked a station in LA on CW then another in TX on USB. A few mins later I worked CE6TK down in Chile (4648 miles from my QTH) After spinning my Hexbeam all over the place for 30 mins trying to pick up stations, I realized my antenna switch was in the wrong position and all the contacts had been made on a 135' OCF dipole. Can't wait to see how the Hex performs on the next opening.
