Contact with Lebanon (Beirut) (OD5OJ Bassam) on 24.940 MHz today afternoon (2022.10.08, 11:53 UTC)

in Ham Radio6 months ago

The propagation was good, but my current antenna is not ideal on the 12 meters (24 MHz) band. This is why I heard him just above the noise level, while he gave me 59, and 55 to 59 signal reports with QSB (fading signals).

My transceiver: Yaesu FT-450D.
Transmitting power: 100 Watts.
My current antenna is a 30 meters long wire antenna, four or five meters above the ground in the garden.

My current QTH (the location of my radioamateur station) is Tiszasüly (KN07EJ), Hungary. OD5OJ Bassam is located in Beirut (KM73RV), Lebanon. The distance is 1960 km.

I am a licensed radioamateur since 2012.01.16 (my callsign is HA5KZO), so I am transmitting legally.

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.
