I just returned to 6M after a 20+ year absence. I was in a hurry to get my new 4 el HyGain Yagi up and stuck it on a mast below my 10M Yagi at about 25 ft.
With QRP on SSB & CW, I Have only heard some local and Aurora DX signals so far.
I worked some of the locals (up to 40 miles away) and tried to work some AU answering several CQs but no luck there.
The only station I worked outside the metro area was 90 miles away and he HAD A 125 FT TOWER.
Higher is always better for good results on VHF !
height will produce good single hop results. Since I will be spending most of my time looking for AM QSOs on 50.400, I would rather have the single hop opportunities that may have a longer proprogation duration than those of multi-hop which have a smaller condx window. Thanks again everyone.[/QUOTE]
