New tropo records on 2m and 70cm

| January 3, 2020

Congratulations to Ian, GM3SEK who set a new 70cm world record distance on tropo on 28 December 2019 by working D41CV at a distance of 4,565km.

That put him in the unique position of holding both EME and tropo records on that band as, back on 12 March 1989, he worked ZL3AAD at 18,970km.

On 1 January 2020, Callum, GM0EWX on the Isle of Skye managed to work D41CV on 2m FT8.

This now extends the 144MHz IARU Region 1 tropo record to 4,776km.
