Activity Dec 3rd

My new 10 meter wire vertical works reasonably well.  Worked some European stations during the afternoon yesterday. Conditions were obviously not great but managed to get through at least with weak signals. Jim, SM2EKM, was most distant contact,

I will try some more 10 meter CW today during daytime. Especially looking for sunrise in European Russia and Europe as such. If signals improve, I will also try SSB.

Before my sunset I will move to 30 meters CW, that has proved to be the most reliable band so far. Takeoff is indeed better into eastern and northeastern direction due to direct sea access in those directions. Much easier so far to work USA compared to Europe despite longer geographical distance.
