A recent Europe to VK-land S2S party yielded contacts and fun for many involved which is petty impressive given the distances, low power and of course the band conditions we love to moan about!
Building on this a North America <> Europe S2S party is planned for November 19, 2016 between 14:00 – 17:00 UTC (6am-9am PST).
I’ve been chased a few times over the last 12 months from Europe including Spain and England. I was using 10 watts SSB into a variety of antennas (End Fed, Magnetic loop and Buddipole) including one last week during Eric (KU6J) event.
So it can be done!!!
Remember to periodically call Summit to Summit along with a CQ to ensure any fellow activators in the EU get a chance to work you. Best of luck and please do share how you fare.
