I had to double-check the frequency.  Yep 7074…NOT 14074.

FT8 decoding VK5, EA8, TA3, YV5, SV1, PY7, VK3.  Who says 40 is dead?  Not me!

2210 UTC.  Nice long-path signals from VK, as they work EU.  I don’t remember long-path this early in the season on 40, a full 90 minutes before local sunset. …and an hour after VK sunrise.  Not quite decoding 9M6XRO...will give it more time.

A=90, K=6.  Something unusual happening, but I like it.

What are you using for an antenna on 40?

Because of local noise, I switched from the high dipole to the HiZ four-square receiving array...pointed LP.
