Six Bands of FT8 by Remote Background One Morning

K9ZW 15SEP20 six bands FT8 Log

Some morning the propagation is really different. On Sept 15th 2020 working FT8 on the second monitor from my work desk, I was able to catch QSOs on 160m, 80m 40m 30m, 20, and 17m. Usually I can find good contacts on a few bands, but not so often on six bands in a session.

It was nice to add to my 160m FT8 QSOs, as I have not spent much time on FT8 160m yet.

I found nothing to work on 15m, 12m and 10m – again that propagation issue!

Gear was my ZeroFive Flagpole Vertical Antenna, a Flex-6700 barefoot, and my trusty Dell Core i7 computer running SmartSDR for Windows and WSJT-X. Connectivity was via SmartLink as my radio is at home.

A sprinkling of DX in the run, Fiji being the most interesting.
