LA0BY in JO59IX wkd via Tropo on 1296 MHz:
19:44 LY2R KO15VS 902 km
19:49 EU4AX KO13VP 1060 km

20:02 SP4MPB KO03HT 911 km
RIG: FT-817ND + XVTR + 23-ele-yagi

About 80% of QSO were made in CW, the rest in SSB. Conditions seemed to be much better on 70cm than on 2m.
Many thanks for all contacts in this truly exceptional tropo event. Will we ever experience something similar in our lifetime?

Comment:
It was fantastic TROPO opening for many years, maybe the best!
Looks, like ES, but more stable and exelence distance. Started on 144 mhz in FT8 with weak signals, in 2-3 hours spread on 432 and even on 1296 mhz!
More remarkabe was QSO on 1296 mhz with my new ODX 2283 km, never hope that distance. One is bad - i switched on 23 cm band too later, after peak.
On 432 mhz also my ODX LA0BY 2615 km, during 2,5 hours with good signal.
Is seams, propagation 432 and 1296 was stronger, then 144.
Thanks for all for nice evening!
Alex- RZ6DD
PS: Have audio records MP3 my QSOs with LA0BY(432), SP4MPB, SM7GEP(1296).
