World Record

During November 2007, my good friend G7LPW made a DX-pedition with his HF backpack to New Zealand.

One of the reasons that the trip to New Zealand was arranged was to make a HF SSB contact between the UK and New Zealand with Keith G7LPW/P/ZL3 using his backpack over in New Zealand and a bicycle here in the UK for me.

After lots of antenna development and with the help of the propagation prediction program “VOAProp” we achieved this two way contact on the 15th November 2007 at 08:00z on the “grey-line” over a “long path” distance of about 21,000Km.

This culminated into a “New World Record” for HF backpack to bicycle mobile.
