New 2 meter distance: 483 kilometers / 2018-06-30

2018-06-30 New 2 meter distance: 483 kilometers 2 years ago
While trying to get an idea of how much interference I have on the 2 meter band I still worked on my distance records: I had a contact with G8GXP which is a distance of 483 kilometers, a new record for me on the 2 meter band.

This is with S5/S6 interference on the 2 meter band as long as the sun is more than a bit above the horizon, which at the moment is very long. Some ferrite added to the solar power convertor already helped, but I guess the solar optimizers also need some work to clear the 2 meter band again.
