I am only 6 months into Ham radio and I know it’s not the best time for HF, but I seem to be able to consistently hit Argentina and other South America countries and Japan a few times. Why not Europe or the UK? Just bad timing? I run a pretty basic station, IC 7300 into a End fed wire in an inverted V that is pretty low, 6’ to 22’ to 10’. I know, it’s a compromised setup but was just courious why no Europe. Now I did hear II9P out of Sicily, Italy on 14.260.20 MHz but he did not hear me then he was gone a few minutes later.
