Hello,
Very nice 144 MHz TEP opening this evening, it started at 23 UTC in 6 meters
with the usual TEP heavy distortions that indicates possible 144 openings so
I quickly moved to 2 meters.
Between 00:10 UTC and 00:30 UTC I again had a very nice TEP opening to
Argentina with very strong signals, I even worked a station running 25 watts
into a 1/4 wave vertical.
