Activity Period on 80m........22nd July 2009

For this activity period, I left the receiver on the 80m frequency from the afternoon of the 22nd to about 08:00 utc on the 23rd.
Antenna : A very low dipole only 4-5 metres above ground level.

Europe...
As expected, lots of EU stations. Most running several watts so nothing special. 2 exceptions were G3NFP running 100mW (~440 kms) and G0VAX running 20mw (~390 kms).

DX...
To the East, VK6POP (10w) was heard twice which was a big suprise! This was about 90 minutes before my local sunset (20:38 utc)

To the West, 2 stations in the US were heard...K1JT (FN20) and W1BW (FN42).
The last spot for K1JT was approx 90 mins after any other European station. W1BW was running only 0.5w.
