Pretty Impresive results on 6M band.

As you will see by the database VK3OT/SIX and VK5PJ have ben conducting experiments on the 6M band over 450 km from Adelaide PF95 and Hamilton QF12.
For those who dont know the path is not line of sight. it is over flat ground desert for hundreds of KM with a slight rise at each end. I am 800 feet AMSL and VK5PJ about 250 feet.
He is running 1 watt to a 9 el M2 yagi. I am listening on an identical antenna (from same batch in 1989) and using a TS690SAT as VK3OT and an FTV1000/FT1000MP with 2ppm osc as VK3SIX.
Best has been plus 2 SNR worst case -22 to -25 SNR. AE counts for the better SNR reports. The path crosses the Melbourne Adelaide jet route around Bordertown at 100nm 220km (half way).
The next test is with VK7JG and VK2Qf at 1000 km and 800km across water and inland respectively.
For the coming cycle of 6M DX I encourage people to switch from the concrete (30M) to the unpredictable magic band. 73 Steve VK3OT.
