Over the last week or so, Geoff, G4EUA,;Paul, 2E0BHA and I have been doing quick tests on 6m FM and we're quite surprised at the paths that we are finding, albeit weakly.
Last week, Geoff heard me when I was north west of Abingdon at Gozzards Ford and he was in Maidenhead. This morning I heard Paul when he was approaching Stow on the Wold in the Cotswolds and I was at Didcot. Around the same time, Geoff heard me, when he was just east of Reading.
Making 'real' QSOs is more difficult, but it's fun to keep trying and see what distances we can hear each other over.
Are you QRV on six metre FM? If so, why not monitor 51.510 and call CQ often? The more people that do, the more fun we'll have!
