ZF1EJ reported a number of stations across North America, including WG2XKA in VT.

VK6XT in South western Australia had a number of nice reports for Eastern Australian stations.  It would be a nice catch for North American stations to be heard in VK6.  Lets hope he continues his participation.  I believe that he is far enough south to be outside of the transmit exclusion zone caused by to two NDB’s.
