Hello Dave,

Congrats on the GW - UN first!

UN3M(/b) is an easy distance for us. I have had over 200 hrs
of monitoring on UN3M/b 70.090 --- sleeping the nights with
the receiver hissing (the way I catched OX3VHF/b 16 times).

http://www.uksmg.org/content/oxfocus.htm

So far no success on UN3M(/b), but "saw" your dream-come-true with
UN8GC heard as the first one. Unfortunately I was at the OF5ZA-loc
with a fixed corner reflector azimuth 205 deg, so just a few dB's too
weak to make it (QRZ??). This happened June 14th 0744Z on 70200.
UN8GC is at about double distance vs. UN3M and just slightly different
azimuth from here. Double-hop happens quite often, also to CT/EA.

Congratulations.
That's further than I've worked on 4M.
Don't forget to inform Bo, OZ2M, so it goes on the first list.

I was lucky enough to work YL, for a first, a few weeks ago.
It's about half the distance. :)

Cheers

Now that's interesting.
What time did you work him?

You have an advantage over me with CW, something I've never got around to.

We seemed to have shared the firsts. :D
Mine, with YL2CP, was at 1213.
Roger, GW4WND, seems to have the first with ER1SS so it's been an interesting time on 4M again.

Cheers

Congrats for the firsts!

Jukka/OH2MA worked ER1SS Saturday for a OH-ER first and I got Moldovia
yesterday in a prolonged opening that also covered a good part of OZ at least.
The ER1FOUR beacon on 70.007 was in for over 20 minutes.


My estimate for European 70 MHz Es is 200 - 300 hours per Summer. Not all
from one place of course. It is a bit like with rain. Local ratios can vary 10:1
even in the same Province.

Yes, interesting times, but pretty shocking to always find over and over again
the half dozen UK-stations, and not too many others. My question: how many
UK-stations are either licensed or set up for getting signals out on CW/SSB on
70 MHz? Not to blame, I have had my breaks of years in operating the bands.

ALL UK amateurs are licenced for 4m! 4m is part of the licence at all 3 classes

For those equipped/active my guess would be around 200, based on UKAC and other RSGB contest activity over the past 2-3 years
