Good Propagation

Good propagation on 40 and 20 meter in the late afternoon and early evening. On 20 meter I heard Indonesia and Japan with very good signals with FT8 digital mode. 40 meter was also very good with a nice opening to Australia.

QRP SSB Sometimes

Not too often I use SSB but yesterday and today I made two QSO’s and of course only 5 watts with my FT817. My FT450 is mainly in use for digimodes. Yesterday and today 40 meter is almost noiseless. Only some QRN from thunderstorms on the North Sea. I did hear F5NLX/P from Planaise, France. Distance 792 km. After a few calls he replied. Today on 20 meter LY2BIS/P from Lithuania. Distance 1450 km. Noise floor on 20 meter is always high, about S8. But it’s nice to work SSB sometimes.
