Managed to do a 90 KM DX From the capital of Valencia to Denia, Alicante in spain. Evening of yesterday, using a plain UV5RA baofeng. Next time I will have a legal PMR on hand to see if the link is feasible with legal power. :D

Here is a video I took of it. Speaking to locals in spanish, but I spoke to the guy in denia in english.

I also managed 160 KM a few hours earlier, Speaking to a chap in Ibiza who was using a 3-element Yagi. Have a video of that one also on the same channel.

Tropospherics were very good yesterday. Image
