Currently, HF propagation has been poor for frequencies above the 20m band. However, during the last two days the 17m band has showed openings to Europe and the Caribbean, allowing for a few JT65 QSOs with DX stations in those locations.
However, the most notable finding was that the 5-Watt JT65 signal output by the ICOM 703 and broadcasted by a vertical end-fed wire antenna could be heard in Antarctica (abt 14K Km) at the DP1POL Neumeyer III station on the Ekström Ice Shelf:
From Ottawa, my QRP signal had reached Antarctica before (also in the 17m band): on December 21, 2014, a CW QSO (later confirmed in LoTW) was completed with callsign RI1ANR in the Novolazarevskaya Station, Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. However this was during a period of significant better HF propagation. Under current conditions, the spotting by DP1POL in PSKreporter (https://pskreporter.info/pskmap.html), even if at -23db (I have had QSOs confirmed with reports as low as -27db), came quite as a surprise.
