    Several times in the last week or two, I have heard a 20 meter FT8 station (UA0SM). The bearing between his transmitter and my antenna is zero degrees on PSKreporter. His latitude is also about the same as mine. The path in PSKreporter goes directly over the north pole.

    He shows up in Grid OO06vh, Irktsk Oblast, Asiatic Russia. My signals never seems to show up in that area.

    It seems like if I could dig a hole all the way through the earth I could end up in his yard.:confused:

    You would have to dig at an angle. From almost all of the Continental U.S., if you go straight down, the hole will fill up with water from the Indian Ocean.

    As soon as you hit a natural gas deposit, all bets are off.

    I like to drill those holes before the temporary plates come off.

    Drill baby drill!
