The Kiwis and the Ruskies are really to be commended on their LF DX QSO. It
is one thing to just receive a fragment of a signal but quite another to
make a QSO. The Vladivostok Dxpedition has truly turned out to be a great
As regards North/South propagation, when I received G3AQC's signals in
Marrakech last October they were surprisingly strong - considering that I
was using a 10m long dipole (configured as a Marconi against mains earth).
Although the DX path was nowhere near the UA0 - ZL distance the signals were
almost dogboning. So either we had very good propagation or there is more to
North/South propagation than meets the eye.
