6M Propagation to Europe on JT65.

Wow, six meters was wide open this morning to Europe. I started playing on CW, but the signals were so steady that I decided to go to JT65 so I could see where I was being heard. I have included a map filtered for my station for the previous 6 hours. The snapshot was taken at 2016-06-13 at 18:05 UTC. Beam was between 45 and 60 degrees. The USA stations were all off the back of a 3 element Yagi. Running 70 watts. The rig was my Flex-5000.

The ARRL VHF contest this weekend also had great openings, primarily state side, although I did work an EA8.

This is the time of year to get on 6 meters.
