After a few misfires, I worked Yuri today on AO-7 Mode B. He is anchored pretty close to the GF24/GF25 line, offshore from Montevideo, Uruguay. He reported GF24, so using GF24ex as his location, the Tiny Locator program says 7585 km, or 4737 miles to my QTH.
I tried a few times last week, but was gone from home for much of the workweek, activating grids in NFL/GA/AL between jobs.
You guys sitting around waiting for a HEO ought to get out and operate a bit...it's still fun.
