Best regards Finbar EI0CF Malin Head.
That is the right attitude.

Meanwhile we know that DCF39 is putting a good signal in eastern Canada,
what we need to know is if our QRP signal can be heard (seen). And the best way is to give it a try.
Best chances are for stations in north-west Europe (EI, GM), but maybe SM
and OH have also a good chance as they have an even more northern (and
'darker') path.

What we further know (thanks to the reports from VA3LK and VE1ZZ) is that
solar disturbances (flares) enhance propagation and that the daily peak is
arround 05 - 06 UTC.

So best chances to cross the pond might be at days with strong solar
disturbances and /or in the early morning (in Europe).

A suggestion to the 'beaconeers' : if possible add a 10 second carries to
the beacon signal (every minute or so) , this will make it easier to detect
the signal with GRAM.
