So 2m was open for most of yesterday! Did anyone else get their fill?

Below are all stations which were spotted by me or whom spotted me. Not bad for a standard colinear antenna and 30w. a very enjoyable day :D

Yes it's been very good on VHF for a week! I usually monitor marine channel 16 (156.800) and when I can hear coastguard stations from the east or south coast of England or French coastguard stations/vessels blasting through I know for certain 2m is open.

Certainly some very impressive contacts you got there!

Its open again today. Just spend an hour on FM with a few stations up towards Montrose.

Not sure if it will last as we have storms due to roll through later tonight and for the next few days....

Another good afternoon with FT8 on 30m. All sorts pop up on the band, just a shame more of the monitoring stations that heard me can't message back :-)

6M looks open for some transatlantic work right now, just seems to be swinging a little too far south for me.
