Unusual 20m condx

At 1715 NZT W6's SSB loud and clear but VK's usually S9 were inaudible. Propagation remains unpredictable.

20 Metres

Contacts with NB7PX LZ4UU 9K2GS - Random wire here with 90 watts.

20 Metres is interesting

Though VK signals were very strong from 1500 - 1600NZT enjoyed very good USB contacts with NB7PX LZ4UU and 9K2GS. 90 watts here (Yaesu 767) and a random wire.

Opening on 20 metres

Today at 0410Z - made a CQ USB on 14180 - back came W5IZ near Dallas Texas - Excellent QSO at 5-9+ both ways - then the band dropped out very quickly just as 10 metres used to do. 73 de ZL1AQ
