The simple facts are as follows:
We logged 52 DXCCs and 12 US states.
As I am visually oriented I like to see what the data means. This is the total log plotted on our planet (click to enlarge):
- Red = 10m, Orange = 15m, Yellow = 20m, Green = 40m, Purple = 80m, Blue = 160m
- Circle = SSB, Star = CW
10, 15 and 20m contacts are as expected scattered around the planet with 10m getting us in to South America (an easy route on 10m from our location) & South Africa (and Mayotte.. of all places); 15m into Japan and 20m into Australia. All quite familiar results from my earlier activities with the hexbeam. On 40m we got well into the US and Caribbean (PJ & WP).
To get a better idea of what we did on the top bands I have a map showing only those contacts:
80m got us into the US - East Coast and Asiatic Russia. On 160m we did not get outside of Europe but we reached the Moscow region both in phone and CW, which is quite a bit further than we expected to get.
Very nice way to translate the results on the colour coded maps.ReplyDelete
Tnx Mike. Yeah, it requires some effort but it works much better to my mind to understand what we actually did.Delete
