Hot on the heels of the last post about the 5400km TEP opening on 144 MHz between Argentina and the island of Aruba, we have details of some more contacts that reached in excess of 6000kms!
David Lama, HI8DL reports that on the night of the 29th of November 2020, both he and Edgar, HI8PLE contacted LU2EPO on 144.300 MHz at 23:57 UTC.
The mode used for the contacts was SSB and the distance was 6102kms.
It is believed that this remarkable contact was possible due to Trans-Equatorial Propagation.
