We had an interesting opening over the evening of 14th and the following morning. It started with a couple of very strong French stations in JN18. I then found the following all worked on SSB on 14th:
OE5XBL JN68, 700m asl, 988 km
DF6MH/P JN57 2400m asl, 902km
On the morning of 15th when there was a contest in Central Europe:
OM3RM JN88 1263 km!
OE3REC JN77 1147 km
OK1DOL JN69 906 km
OE/OK5SE/P JN77 1137 km
OK1KKI JN79 1059 km
Plus, some more local Continentals.
My return to 2 metres SSB after 30 years absence was only in February 2018, so OE, OK and OM are new countries on the band for me from this QTH. The Slovak Republic was a particular surprise, being so strong and my thinking he was Belgian until he gave his locator. It was early and I was still half asleep; at least that is my excuse.
The above was my first DX foray with my FT991 running 50 watts rather than the 25 watts from my old FT290R and small amplifier, but I am not mothballing the old radio and will keep it ready to go.
