Tonight around 2100 SAST Andre ZS2ACP of Port Elizabeth and Phil FR5DN in Reunion Island established a new record on 144,401 MHz, using the JT65b digital mode. The distance here is 3205 km and is a new SARL 2 Metre DX Digital record. Glenn ZS2GK alerted Andre about the opening; the Hepburn Index also indicated excellent conditions across the Indian Ocean.

Congratulations to both Andre ZS2ACP and Phil FR5DN on thir great achievement.
