Comment:I was not in perfect position for this tropo, but it was enough to work 2 x OH on 2m and 1 x on 70cm.
SM6BFE and OH3LPW are 70cm QSOs. The QSO with OH3LPW was in JT65B Mode and Ari's signal peaked with -23 dB at my RX.
This is my new 70cm Tropo ODX.
Rig:K3 + transverter

Comment:I heard a number of DL stations and a few PA's working into OH. Took a listen and OH1ND was fairly easy. I did hear OH6KTL a little later but not quite strong enough for a 2 way QSO
