A little VHF propagation and activity

Bands were rather quiet during the week and QRL kept me busy anyway. A little more propagation today but still all very selective. Anyway, nice to see 4 m opening to Greece at least (also heard/saw two Maltese for about 2 minutes) with JM99 as a new square (now #186), too. 😎 Even 6 m provided a new one with KM29 (#663) today and even in SSB, who would have thought that? 😉 I have to admit I lost interest in 6 m a little as I think things changed not for the good during the last two years or so operations-wise and besides JO73 being the 6 m blackhole anyway. No fun to listen to all the other guys working the DX while it never pops up over here. It seems we’re always half a hop too close or too far. There are typical spots that always get the good propagation even if people there are complaining, too. 😀
