had to leave between 11:40 --- 12:47 Oekraine signals 144 still 9++
possible LO or LN main squares missed?
but i had to leave..
I wonder why most VHF hams need to exchange Locator in every QSO
even when signals can fade out fast
and why most VHF HAMs do not use LOTW
all activity was concentrated close to 144300 MHz
FM QSO are reported too huge signals at times
AP2AM seen at 50MHz in JT65 but huge pile of very strong competitors
would be a new one
heard at my new made 7el in test at 5m a.g.
went QSY to 144 a good decision..
