I had plans to do SOAB in ARRL CW but I didn’t really feel motivated so SM2LIY said he was willing to do SB 15m to test the new stack. Propagation’s seems like they pretty much perfect for us up in the north. SFI was too low to keep bands open very long but each evening a bit or aurora opened the band up and he was able to run US until 03z on Saturday and until 0330z on Sunday.

Very close to a new European record, only some 20-30 qsos from it which was suprising.
