150 Miles is in the skip zone for 30 meters. E.g. I cannot hear DK4XI-0 on 30, which is abt. 200 km. On 30 we use a network where the servers have a distance of more than 500 Miles from each other. For the shorter distances we have 2 servers on 80 meters (NVIS) which works well during the day time.Lots of QRM in the evening... It would be a good idea to do a VOACAP propagation analysis for your QTH, that has proven to be very accurate...I guess 40m would be ok for your distance to Fred. 73, Rein PA0R
All of the NA servers except VE7SUN are all less than 500 miles from me. I need to work on a NVIS antenna, seems that may be the way to go. The VOACAP is going to be the 1st on the agenda.
