My location is in the 53 degree north zone (Liverpool, UK) and I often wonder how the guys in lower latitudes see their DX? At the moment It is a luxury to hear Pacific and West Coast US, JA and Eastern Asia are tricky, bar Thailand which seems fairly straightforward. East coast US stations can vary from in the noise to 559, a VE spotted me the other day but I could hardly hear them, never mind make out their call For me, VK and ZL are also rare, only heard one VK of late and that was on 40m CW. I appreciate we're coming out of a 'Maunder minimum' sort of thing, but in 41 years of radio, I've not heard band conditions like this. So - over to the PY/LU/African/Equatorial Ops and anyone else who would like to pass comment, what's your DX like? My setup is Icom 7300, Cobweb (G3TXQ Version, 20m -4m ) at 33 feet AGL and the ability for 400 Watts if needed.
