I can usually work into netherlands/france/Jersey with 50W on 70cm from my location, and I have to beam through the hill that you sit on ... I was otherwise occupied on Tuesday, will be on 6m on Thursday though.

New IARU R1 record on 241 GHz. QSO 6 March 2020, 17.10 UTC between:

Fantastic. 

Best last night here in 432FMAC was just 62Km, with 50W to X5000 colinear at 50ft. 

Mind you, someone got 112Km with 25W and a dipole......... apparently!.
I wonder how high the dipole was?

Seems I'm wasting my time and efforts in some respects.
