Activity Period on 40m.....15th July 2009

I left the rig on 40m for most of the activity period running from early on the 15th to around 08:00 on the 16th.

Using a very low doublet (~5m agl), the following were heard :
Europe....usual stations although DL6NL with 50mW was weak but consistent for the whole day.

DX...the following were logged :
VE3ODZ (5w)
WB4KLJ (2w)
KE7A (5w) in Texas...consistent signal for ~4-5 hours both mornings.
PY8ELO (20w)

VK6POP (10w)...heard several times on the evening of the 15th. First heard 16:00...several hours before local sunset & several hours before sunrise in VK.

KE0CO (5w) & W7RDP (5w) in Washington state in the NW USA.

Both stations (3 spots in total) were only heard at my local sunrise which was at 04:33. I was suprised to see that I was the only station in Europe to hear them that morning.
